Before people with a full arch of missing teeth can become candidates for full mouth dental implants, they need to have enough jawbone density to support the dental implants with. That is why people with jawbone loss should get treated with bone grafting before getting treated with full mouth dental implants in Fredericksburg, VA.
By making the jawbone dense and healthy with a bone grafting procedure, patients can have a permanent new smile that is reliable and strong.
Why May I Need A Bone Grafting Procedure Before My Full Mouth Dental Implants Are Placed?
No matter the cause for jawbone loss, whether it be from tooth extractions, trauma, or gum disease, it can prevent people from living their life comfortably and normally. Jawbone loss can specifically prevent people from having properly functioning teeth that do not allow them to eat the foods they want, speak comfortably, and smile confidently.
A decrease in jawbone density can also cause a person’s jawbone to resorb, giving the persons face a sunken in looking appearance. Any remaining teeth that people may have are at risk for shifting out of place or falling out when they have a weak jawbone.
When there is little bone tissue in a person’s jaw that can be used as a foundation for successful dental implant placements, bone grafting can be a great option to make sure they can receive full mouth dental implants in Fredericksburg, VA.
Bone grafting is a revolutionary procedure that helps to rebuild a patient’s jawbone so that it is dense, healthy, and strong. When people go to a skilled oral surgeon for their bone grafting procedure so they can get the full mouth dental implants they need and deserve, the oral surgeon will first evaluate the overall state of their teeth and gums. By doing so, the oral surgeon can create a customized treatment plan for every person’s unique smile needs and goals.
How Is A Bone Grafting Procedure Performed For Successful Full Mouth Dental Implants?
During a bone grafting procedure, the oral surgeon will first place the patient under sedation dentistry so they can have a comfortable and anxiety free procedure experience. An incision in the skin above where the graft will be placed is then made. Next the bone graft material is placed in the area of the jaw where it has low bone density.
The area of the bone grafting procedure is then stitched closed and any necessary bandages are placed. Then, the healing and recovery process can begin. Once healing is complete at the site of where the bone grafting procedure is performed, the area has enough bone density to permanently hold the patient’s full mouth dental implants.
It is important for patients to go to a knowledgeable oral surgeon who can accurately and precisely execute bone grafting and full mouth dental implant procedures for long-lasting results.
