The Woodlands, TX Periodontist, Dr. Gayle Bradshaw is Now Accepting New Patients For The Modern Bone Graft Procedure To Strengthen Jaw Bone For Dental Implants
Date:2/17/2013

The Woodlands, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2013

Dr. Gayle Bradshaw offers bone grafting as a means of augmenting available bone so that installing dental implants is possible, and she is now accepting new patients for this modern dental procedure. When teeth are missing, the bite can be impacted and normal eating may be affected. Implants are often used by a periodontist to replace missing teeth and improve a patient's bite. However, when teeth are missing, the bone immediately begins the process of deterioration, and sometimes there is not enough bone mass to support implants. When this occurs, a bone grafting procedure is often needed prior to implant installation.

When the amount of bone missing in a patient's mouth makes it inadvisable to install dental implants, bone grafting surgery can increase the available bone so that an implant may be possible. There are three popular types of grafts, each with their own advantages. The allograft is taken from a human bone bank and allows the periodontist access to as much bone material as needed without requiring a second surgical site on the patient. The Autogenous graft is taken from the patient, and offers a lower risk of rejection. The Xenograft is from a non-human bone bank, usually from a cow. All bone material from bone banks has been thoroughly screened.

No matter which type of graft is used, the procedure is similar. The periodontist uses tiny titanium screws to anchor the bone graft to the existing bone. Sutures are used to close up the incision. The area is allowed to heal for a number of months, and when healing is complete, the periodontist may perform the surgery to install the dental implants.

Dental implants are considered to be a long-term answer to the problem of missing teeth. However, they require a certain amount of bone density or mass in order to successfully integrate into the jaw. When the bone mass is not sufficient, bone grafting is a viable solution for augmenting the jaw. Once the graft has healed, implant surgery is possible.
