Expert bone grafting for your dental implants to restore your beautiful, healthy smile

Smile Specialists Suite offers professional dental bone graft surgery to provide a solid foundation for dental implants. This ensures your dental implants have the support they need for a successful and lasting smile.

Contact us today to find out more about bone grafting and why it is an essential part of smile restoration.

What are dental bone grafts?

Dental bone grafting is used to rebuild or enhance the density and volume of your jawbone. Injury, gum disease, infection and dental cavities can cause bone loss over time. This may mean that there is not enough bone for a dental implant and we need to add more through a bone graft procedure.

A dental bone graft acts like scaffolding for your teeth, strengthening and enhancing your jawbone so missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants.

What are the different types of bone grafts?

There are several different types of bone graft material we can use to address bone loss:

  • Autografts: Bone taken from the patient’s own body from a “donor site” and moved to your jaw
  • Allografts: Bone sourced from a human donor, processed through a lab so it is safe
  • Xenografts: Bone grafts from animal sources, typically bovine
  • Alloplast: Artificial (synthetic) bone graft material that comes in many forms including powder, granules, putty or even gel

Each material used in bone grafting has its own set of pros and cons. During your consultation, we’ll have an in-depth discussion about the best treatment option and the most suitable material for a bone graft for a dental implant.

Why do you need a dental bone graft?

Typically, a dental bone graft is necessary for individuals experiencing bone loss in their jaw. You might need this procedure if you:

  • Are undergoing a tooth extraction
  • Intend to replace a missing tooth with dental implants
  • Require jawbone rebuilding before receiving dentures, crowns or bridges
  • Have experienced bone loss in the jaw due to severe gum disease (periodontal disease)

A bone graft is a dental surgery that aims to add new bone to your jaw to create a healthy bone structure that will support dental implants.

Am I a suitable candidate for a dental bone graft?

Your dentist or periodontist will thoroughly assess your jaw, mouth, teeth and gums to determine if you are a suitable candidate for bone grafting.

What is the dental bone grafting procedure?

Smile Specialists Suite’s friendly team guides you through every step of your dental bone graft surgical procedure.

Consultation and pre-surgery

Our periodontists will start with a consultation where they will assess your teeth and gums, evaluate your existing bone structure and discuss your medical history. They will order or conduct further tests or scans such as X-rays to determine the level of bone loss and plan the dental bone graft implant surgery.

The dental bone graft procedure

At Smile Specialists Suite we use magnifying loupes or microscopy, along with additional surgical lighting and miniaturised dental surgical instruments to perform bone grafting procedures.

Our specialised periodontists make a small incision in the gum tissue to reveal the underlying bone mass. The bone graft is then placed into the jaw bone. Over time, the grafted bone is integrated into the natural bone tissue. This strengthens the structure of your jawbone and mouth so you are ready for a dental implant placement once the healing process is complete.

Recovery and aftercare

After dental bone graft work it’s important to follow the post-operative instructions your periodontist gives. They will recommend things like:

  • Ensure you maintain good oral health by brushing gently and using a prescribed mouthwash
  • Take prescribed pain relief and antibiotics as directed
  • Eat soft foods for at least two days, and avoid anything too hot or cold
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activities for a few days
  • Use ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising
  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol
  • Make sure you attend all follow-up appointments

Frequently Asked Questions

Once the grafted new bone has successfully integrated with your natural bone tissue, it is permanent. It will last for as long as your natural bones do.

Whether you need a bone graft for a dental implant depends on your jawbone’s density and volume. If the bone is too thin or weak to support an implant, a bone graft may be necessary.

The best material varies depending on the individual case. Options include:

  • Autografts (bone from your body)
  • Allografts (donor bone)
  • Xenografts (animal bone)
  • Synthetic materials

Your periodontal surgeon will recommend the most suitable type for you.

While it’s rare, graft rejection can happen. In most cases, the body successfully accepts the graft, especially if it’s an autograft. Your oral surgeon will discuss any risks and potential complications of the bone graft procedure before your surgery.

Dental bone grafts can be performed under local anaesthesia (where the gum is numbed) or under general anaesthesia (where you are put to sleep). The type of anaesthesia depends on the procedure’s complexity and the patient’s comfort level.

Like any surgical procedure, there’s a risk of failure, but it’s relatively low. Failure can occur due to infection, insufficient bone integration, or poor oral hygiene. Following post-surgery care instructions is crucial for success.
