Want to avail of dental implants but your dentist says you have a thin jawbone?
What is a bone graft?
After assessing the quality and quantity of the patient’s jawbone, your implant surgeon will create a flap of skin (on the gumline) and when the jawbone is exposed, he/she will place the bone graft and cover it with a protective membrane (to protect from germs and encourage healing). Then the gum flap is stitched back into place. The healing period takes 4 months and the patient is prescribed with antibiotics and antibiotic gargles.
Why is bone grafting done?
Bone grafting is performed to have a sufficient jawbone when the dental implant is placed. Having a thick jawbone provides a sturdy support for implant-supported teeth.
