What is the bone graft procedure about?
Carrying out a dental implant procedure in a patient who suffers from jaw bone density loss without first performing a bone graft surgery can have bad consequences, since the dental implants will not be fixed well, and if an implant has to be removed, the bone loss will be higher.
That is why, during the first consultation, our expert dentist Dr. Xochipilli Bojorquez will perform a deep examination to identify what type of damage exists in the bone 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 a sinus lift surgery and offer you the best dental care.
Although it may sound complicated, it is a simple procedure that can be completed in one session.
Our dentist will agree with the patient and the anesthesiologist 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.
