No all jaw bones are created equal! So, when you come to Alani Dental for smile restoration, you may find that a bone graft is necessary. We use bone grafts to create an ideal environment for restoration, like dental implants.
A bone graft is an oral surgery that requires taking bone from another area of the body or a donor and placing it into the jaw. This reinforces the jaw, making it stronger and more prepared for smile restoration.
In dentistry, a bone graft is used to reinforce the jaw bone. This is sometimes required to prepare a patient for dental implants. In order to place a dental implants, there needs to be sufficient bone for the titanium post to fuse with.
During a bone graft, we are able to take tissue from a healthy part of your body or a donor and place it where it is needed. This is oral surgery and will require anesthesia. Your vitals and wellbeing are monitored carefully throughout the duration of the procedure. Post-procedure, we will walk you through the post-care and be available for you to ask any questions.
If your smile isn’t quite ready for your ideal form of restoration, you have options! Contact Alani Dental to schedule an appointment to discuss the possibility of a bone graft in Jacksonville Florida today.
