Bone Grafts in Los Algodones, Mexico

Bone grafting is a dental treatment that is performed to increase the size of the jaw bone in cases where there is bone loss due to tooth extraction, traumatic injury, or some other oral disease. After this surgery, a dental implant can be attached to the grafted bone. Sinus lifts are a very similar procedure but are done on the upper jaw to prevent bone loss.

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 a 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.

Bone grafting

During surgery, our implant dentistry specialist will make an incision in the gum to separate the soft tissue from the existing bone, then the new bone or bone graft material will be placed and fixed to the jawbone with a titanium screw. Finally, the area will be covered with a membrane and the gum will be sutured. The healing process will last 3 to 6 months so that the grafted bone is perfectly healed to place the dental implant.

Why is a bone graft necessary to get dental implants?

One of the most used and effective dental treatments to replace missing teeth is dental implants; Through this procedure, a titanium implant is fixed in the jaw bone to which the new tooth will be attached. It is a very effective long-term solution and a perfect way to restore the aesthetic to the smile, but, to be eligible for a dental implant, it will be necessary for the bone to meet the appropriate conditions for the implant to be fixed.

Losing a tooth produces a natural bone density loss on the jaw. Without a tooth to stimulate the bone, it will be slowly reabsorbed losing volume in the process. So, if you want to have a dental implant and the jawbone has shrunk considerably, a bone graft will be necessary.

The process of bone density loss happens in all cases of tooth loss, even if it is a tooth extracted. The use of removable prostheses or full dentures prevents displacement of the teeth, but not bone degradation. Periodontal disease or gum disease can also cause loss of bone structure, so it is important to pay attention to our oral health, not only to have a beautiful smile but to enjoy good health.

Types of bone graft used to place dental implants

Bone grafts are taken from other parts of bone tissue and placed in the required location to increase its size. These grafts can be taken from the patient or just plastic biocompatible materials. Far from what you may think about, bone grafting, it’s a simple and painless procedure. 3 main types of bone graft can be used for bone augmentation in dental implant treatments.

Autogenous: the patient’s bone tissue is taken and grafted. The graft can be taken from another part of the jaw or chin to avoid making other extraoral wounds. This bone grafting is ideal since there is no risk of rejection or infection. Also, the healing process will be quicker and the implant placement could be done in less time.

Allograft: the graft is a sample of bone tissue taken from another donor. This sample has been treated to achieve neutrality and immunity to prevent rejection and infection.

Alloplastic: the grafting is a synthetic material, perfectly biocompatible.

There is a fourth bone graft material called xenographic material, in which processed bovine bone is used to create a natural substitute for human bone. This alternative has been fully approved and is becoming more common in bone grafting procedures.

After grafting, the bone will reach its proper height and width. The recovery period can take between three weeks to six months as the body begins to assimilate and integrate the graft on a cellular level. After the bone graft surgery, you will be able to get dental implant surgery

To consider before and after the bone grafting surgery

If you have missing spaces in your mouth due to extraction, injury, or age, and you have waited some years to get a treatment, you are most likely to have damage in the jawbone structure, so you are a candidate for a bone grafting.

Before the surgical procedure, our doctor will examine the area by doing a CT Scan and a series of X-rays in the upper and lower jaw to identify the type of damage that exists in the bone and determine the amount of bone that should be grafted. Thanks to our technological equipment, Dr. Bojorquez will be able to show you a virtual tour of what the surgery will be like.

During the wound healing process, patients should avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 3 months and don’t smoke to avoid damage or infection in the sinus area.
