What is bone graft procedure about?
Carrying out implant dentistry work in a patient who suffers from jaw bone density loss without first performing a bone graft surgery can have bad consequences, since the implant will not be fixed well, and if the implant has to be removed, the bone density loss will be higher.
That is why, during the first consultation, Dr. Xochipilli Bojorquez will do a deep examination to identify what type of damage exists in the tissue, or if there is any other disease that is affecting your oral health, to know if you are a candidate for a bone graft procedure or sinus lift surgery.
Although it may sound complicated, it is a simple procedure that can be completed in one session. Our dentist will agree with the patient if the dental bone restoration surgery will be performed with local anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the type of graft material to be used and the patient’s preferences.
