Bone grafting is precise and adaptable. During a bone grafting procedure, the dentist can tailor the graft to fit the exact shape and size of the bone defect. This precision ensures the patient’s natural anatomy is respected and the most optimal outcome is achieved. Moreover, bone grafting can be applied in various dental scenarios such as dental implant placement, periodontal disease treatment, or after tooth extraction.
Bone grafting speeds up the healing process. Following a bone graft, the natural regeneration process of the body is kickstarted, leading to quicker recovery times. Additionally, the use of modern graft materials often stimulate bone growth, further aiding the healing process.
Bone grafting offers high success rates. With the advanced technologies and materials used in the process, bone grafting boasts a high success rate. It enhances the foundation for dental restorations, improves oral health, and in many cases, helps to maintain the facial structure that could otherwise change with bone loss.
While bone grafting has proven highly successful and beneficial for many patients, it may not always be the suitable choice for everyone. It is crucial to have a detailed discussion with your dentist or oral surgeon – in our case, Dr. Mobley – to determine whether bone grafting is the right option for you. Dr. Mobley will evaluate your oral health condition, consider your specific needs, and guide you to the best treatment plan.
