Are You About To Undergo A Bone Graft Dental Procedure?
Would you like to know more?
If you are a candidate for dental implants or certain gum treatments which require a bone graft or bone augmentation procedure, you may find the following information helpful.

In addition, bone graft dental procedures are also needed in areas without teeth, in order to insert implants and crowns thereafter. With the correct augmentation, it is possible to ensure both the desired bone quality and quantity, perform a successful implant procedure, and reach improved esthetic results.
It is exactly for this purpose that a bone substitute is needed; to stimulate bone growth by filling in areas where bone is missing or deficient. The purpose of the bone substitute is to act as a supporting platform or as a scaffolding, which will allow bone to be built in an area where there is bone deficiency, within a period of several months.
The outcome will depend on the specific bone substitute used and will result in either the bone substitute remaining at the graft site for some time or by the absorption and disappearance of the bone substitute while simultaneously being replaced by the patient’s own bone. This process of absorption, disappearance, and replacement is called bone regeneration.
This mineral completely resorbs and is replaced with the patient’s own bone. The material acts as a scaffolding for building the new bone, and completely disappears as it rebuilds itself. This means that the resulting outcome is perfect bone regeneration, which is the result most similar to using the patient’s own bone but without the additional surgical procedures and side effects.
In such cases, the waiting time is at least 5-6 months. The recovery time also depends on the type of bone substitute used, the complexity of the grafting procedure, and the location of the transplant in the mouth (upper or lower jaw).
Calcium sulfate is known for its extraordinary properties as a bone substitute and in encouraging bone formation. During the healing process, the material is absorbed and completely replaced by the patient’s own bone, without leaving any residue whatsoever.
