  • What is a dental bone graft?

    A Dental Bone Graft is a surgical procedure aimed at rebuilding or repairing bones through the transplantation of bone tissue. It’s typically performed to increase the density of the jawbone in preparation for dental implants or to rectify bone loss resulting from periodontal disease. The graft material, which can be sourced from the patient’s body, a donor, or made from synthetic materials, acts as a platform for new bone growth, integrating with the existing bone structure over time.

  • Are dental bone grafts painful?

    While the thought of bone grafting may seem daunting, anesthesia or sedation dentistry makes the procedure surprisingly comfortable. Patients may experience some discomfort post-surgery, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and prescribed medications. At Westhill Dental, patient comfort and care are our top priorities. We provide detailed aftercare instructions and support to ensure a smooth, minimal discomfort recovery process.

  • How long does it take to recover from a dental bone graft?

    The initial recovery period from a dental bone graft typically lasts from one to two weeks. Patients may be advised to adhere to a soft diet and avoid certain activities that could jeopardize the graft during this time. The complete integration of the graft with the jawbone is necessary before proceeding with further restorative treatments like implants, which can take several months. The exact timeline varies depending on the individual’s health, the extent of the grafting, and the type of graft material used. Regular follow-up appointments at Westhill Dental will ensure your recovery is progressing as planned.
