Bone Grafting

If a patient needs a dental implant but doesn’t have enough bone to support it, can he or she still get implants? Yes, thanks to a bone graft.

Bone grafts for the dental implant procedure

A bone graft procedure allows patients to still receive implants even though he or she may not have a sufficient amount of bone. The right amount of bone is needed in order for the implant to have a stable foundation within the jaw bone.

Bone grafts have also been shown to slow down the progression of bone loss in the jaw area.

Dr. Blevins will determine which type of bone graft is needed— alloplast, autogenous, xenograft, or allograft.

After the procedure, your implant dentist will talk to you about the healing and recovery period, which may take up to three months for a full recovery. During this time, you will follow certain post-operative instructions, including restrictions and requirements.

Once the bone graft heals properly, dental implants can be placed.
