What Is a Bone Graft?

Bone Grafting is a surgical procedure used to address missing natural bone in a certain area of the body. When a larger area of the bone is defected a bone block or block bone grafting procedure can be performed.

Why Is Bone Graft Needed?

In dentistry, bone grafting (or bone block) is used to address areas in the mouth with thin, soft or lacking natural jawbone by grafting new bone into the particular area in question. This ensures there will be enough jawbone to successfully perform a dental implant procedure during which a dental implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone.

  • Natural bone deficiency is caused by:

  • Periodontal (gum) diseases;

  • Missing teeth - bone starts to shrink where teeth are missing;

  • Injury or trauma to the jawbone or face in general;

  • Facial development defects.

  • Do I Need Bone Grafting?

    If you are missing a tooth, have gum diseases or have any other issues that can cause natural bone deficiency, you might require bone grafting. At our clinics, our dental experts will determine how much bone is lacking and whether this procedure is needed. 

  • Is It Normal That I Need Bone Grafting?

    The procedure is quite common among patients seeking dental implant treatment. Our team do it almost every day, so you do not need to be scared.

  • What Is the Bone Graft Procedure?

    In most cases, our dental team will use specific bone grafting material such as bovine or porcine in combination with your natural bone to graft new bone onto your natural jawbone.

  • It can take up to several months for enough new and strong bone to be grown with this procedure. If it is determined that there is not much bone needing to be grafted, it can be done along with the dental implant procedure.

  • Once bone grafting is complete and there is enough jawbone present, the dental implant procedure can commence.

IT IS SAFE TO VISIT US!

Updated: 21st of January

Dear patients,

Everyone of us has had to give up something due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Even such little things such as getting a haircut, lifting weights at the gym and other beauty and self-care activities are currently unavailable understandably. However, this is not the case for medical appointments.

According to the latest government guidelines, medical appointments – including visits to dental practices - are one of the few reasons you can leave your house, so we are encouraging everyone in need of dental treatment to book an appointment with us and not let your dental health suffer.

HOW IT WORKS? 

• Upon booking an appointment with us, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from our team.
• You can then use this e-mail confirmation of your appointment as proof of why you are outside, if needed.

HOW IS IT SAFE? 

• Our staff are equipped with additional PPE gear, to ensure as safe treatment procedures as possible.
• We have longer gaps between appointments to thoroughly clean and disinfect surgeries.
• We do a Covid-19 screening of each visiting patient before their appointment.
• Our waiting area is closed to ensure social distancing measures.
• Patients are asked to come only a few minutes prior to their appointment.
• We only let patients in the clinic as the appointment is about to begin.

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinics,
Stay safe and healthy.
