What Is A Bone Graft? | Dental Art Implant Clinics

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.

LOCKDOWN UPDATE, 5TH JAN 2021 - WE ARE STILL OPEN

Dear patients, 

According to the latest Government guidelines and the advice of the British Dental Association, we are currently still operating and treating patients at our clinics for scheduled appointments during the current lockdown. Unless the situation changes, this will continue throughout the current period of restrictions.

The current Government guidelines in relation to the lockdown state that "The majority of public services will continue and you will be able to leave home to visit them. These include the NHS and medical services like GPs and dentists".

We will of course continue to monitor the situation and provide our patients with any necessary updates.  

The safety of our patients and staff remains our absolute priority, therefore, all the additional safety precautions that have been in place over the last few months will remain, to ensure a safe and pleasant experience at our clinics.

Feel free to get in touch with us to find out when you can book an appointment and to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have. 

Thank you to all of our wonderful patients for your understanding and patience during this difficult time. 

Stay safe and healthy.
