Dental Bone Graft

Dental bone grafts are essential procedures for patients who have lost bone density in their jaws, often due to tooth loss, periodontal disease, or trauma. At Willow Dental, we provide bone grafting to restore the integrity of your jawbone, ensuring it can support dental restorations and maintain the natural shape of your face.

Dental Bone Grafts in New Berlin, WI

A dental bone graft involves adding bone or bone-like materials to the jaw to rebuild and strengthen the bone structure. This procedure is crucial for those considering dental implants, as sufficient bone density is needed to support the implant securely. Bone grafts prepare the site for future implants and help maintain facial aesthetics by preventing the jawbone from further deterioration.  Our skilled dental team uses advanced techniques and materials to ensure the best outcomes, focusing on minimizing discomfort and speeding up the recovery process for our patients.

  • What is a dental bone graft?

    A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure that rebuilds lost bone in the jaw. During the procedure, bone from another area of the body or a special bone grafting material is placed into the jawbone. This graft helps regenerate lost bone, providing a stable foundation for dental implants or helping to restore facial structure.

     

  • Are dental bone grafts painful?

    Patients may experience some discomfort after the procedure, but most pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribed medications. The procedure itself is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free during the operation. We offer a variety of sedation options for all procedures to ensure your visit is comfortable and pain-free.

     

  • How long does it take to recover from a dental bone graft?

    Recovery from a dental bone graft can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and the individual’s overall health. Generally, initial healing occurs within two weeks, but the bone graft will need to integrate with the existing bone structure over several months. During this time, patients are advised to follow specific care instructions to ensure successful healing and bone development.
