What is a Dental Bone Graft?

Example of bone grafting procedure for dental implant in Albania.

Dental Bone Grafts are parts of a bone that we take either through the mouth or from other parts of the body such as the skull, pelvic crest or tibia and they are used to repair defective bone areas of the jaws. In general, we always try to take the implant through the mouth (from favorable points of the upper and lower jaw) and to supplement the amount, if not enough, with artificial implants which have a structure similar to human bone but at the same time a very well functional as well as aesthetic results and without risk of rejection. Out-of-mouth transplants are heavier, and are only preferred in cases where a large portion of bone is missing.

The oral and maxillofacial surgeon can repair with great results large gaps of soft and hard tissues with implants that he takes from other parts of the body and places in the deficit area with the help of a microscope. Due to his experience in intraoral reconstructive surgery, he can succeed in placing the appropriate implant even in areas with reduced or minimal bone and creating a solid support for the patient’s dental rehabilitation. With the appropriate design, they can be placed immediately and dental implants resulting in immediate improvement of speech and chewing.

Many of these surgeries, due to the orthodontist’s training and experience, can be performed quickly, painlessly and with excellent results under local anesthesia or intoxication by avoiding hospitalization.

How Does a Dental Bone Graft Work?

The main purpose of bone grafts and directed tissue regeneration is not simply to replace the lost bone with a foreign implant, but to help the body rebuild its own bone to replace the lost part of the jaw bone.

The bone graft is the skeleton on which the new bone will be created. Our body gradually decomposes the bone graft and with its building materials creates a new bone of its own.

Directed tissue regeneration is achieved by using a special membrane to isolate the area where the bone is to be created, while the substances with which it is impregnated act as activators of bone formation, aiding and accelerating the natural process.

Who Needs Bone Grafting for Dental Implants?

If someone has a bone loss in their jaw then commonly, he or she is in need of a dental bone graft. The procedure of a bone grafting for a dental implant, may be recommended for you, if you:

  • Are having a tooth extracted.
  • Plan to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant.
  • Need to rebuild the jaw before getting dentures.
  • Have areas of bone loss due to gum (periodontal) disease.

Sometimes, the reason why people choose to have a bone grafting is financial or even logistical. In both ways, a bone loss comes about every day that the tooth is missing.

When is Bone Grafting for Dental Implants Necessary?

A bone graft is a routine procedure for stabilizing bone tissue in the jaw. Throughout the time of   dental implant surgery, a small hole is made in the patient’s jaw in order to hold the implant, which is a small titanium member that anchors the denture in place. In order to complete this procedure, the bones in the jaw must be wide and firm enough so to hold the implant.

Bone grafting is usually recommended when the patient has had a jaw injury or has extensive tooth decay. In these cases, the bone tissue may have been lost due to atrophy and absorption. If your jaw bone is atrophied or not strong enough, then the pressure exerted on the jaw by repeated chewing can damage the dental implant and increase the risk of dental implant failure.

When your dentist decides that there is not enough bone tissue to support dental implants, then he or she will suggest you a bone graft. Some patients may also be candidates for synthetic bone graft material depending on the severity of the natural jaw injury.

Types of Bone Grafts

There are four different types of bone grafts:

  • Autografts, which use bone tissue obtained from the patient’s body. The doctor usually takes this tissue from the patient’s chin, tibia or hip.
  • Allografts which come from a human donor, who has undergone treatments in order to make it neutral in immune responses and free of host diseases.
  • Xenografts which use the inorganic parts of animal bones. The most common source of this type are cows. 
  • Alloplasts which are made from hydroxyapatite, a natural bone mineral in combination with other materials such as calcium or bioactive glass.

Bone Implant Placement Procedure

Bone graft for implants is a common procedure that has been performed on a daily basis at the Dental Clinic of Trio Dental Center.

Prior to surgery, anesthesia or intravenous sedation is given to prevent any discomfort. The dentist cleans the area and then makes an incision through the gum tissue in order to expose the area which is required by the bone system. Healthy bone tissue, or combined bone tissue, is then placed between the two parts of bone that need to be joined.

At this place, there are 2 cases depending on each case separately:

  1. Immediate placement of implant and bone graft. The healing process of this part will take at least 3-6 months in order to have a complete ossification, before the prosthetic work is placed.
  2. First a bone graft is placed and after complete healing of the bone – Then the dental implant is placed in the 2nd year. The healing time can take several weeks to allow the jaw bone to regenerate in order to place the dental implants. You will then need some several weeks to heal after the dental implants are placed before the brace and crown are attached. At this place the total time, from the moment the bone graft is inserted until the prosthetic work is placed, will be a minimum of 8 months.

At Trio Dental Center we are convinced that we should reduce the risk of losing any dental implant to a minimum. And for this reason, we follow internationally recognized dental protocols from the literature as well as practices that are used from the best universities in the world.

What Happens Postoperatively to a Bone Grafting Procedure?

Although time consuming, bone grafts can be a crucial and necessary part of any implantation process. After surgery, patients may experience common discomfort, such as swelling or bruising of the gums or skin and minor bleeding.

Despite that, these common side effects drop out quickly. There are also some dietary restrictions, such as eating only soft foods while healing, after each stage of bone grafting and implantation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Including extraction, the bone graft and membrane procedure can take up to 45 minutes, depending on the case. To place the implant with guided surgery, this appointment will not take more than an hour.

An implant appointment can take up to 60 minutes!

From a bone graft and a membrane, your gums may feel bruised, as if you had accidentally bitten your lips.

With an implant, there is no pain caused from it, but the gums may have some pain and some swelling – as if they had bitten their lips. Definitely less pain than an extraction.

It is completely safe. The potential dangers are rejection of the graft – something that is very unlikely and infection, which, again, is very unlikely. We give antibiotics for seven days to fight it. Finally, the body could dissolve the bone graft faster than it can turn it into bone, so a second graft may be needed.

A bone graft can be infected – the mouth is the dirtiest part of the human body and even with our best efforts, the infection can enter the graft.

Also, smoking and poor oral hygiene can increase the risk!

For this reason, you must faithfully follow the instructions of our specialized dentists on the part of implants and bone regeneration!

The body could dismantle the bone marrow faster than it can heal, so it’s not a failure but we may need to re-bone the bone so that there is enough bone.

The body can also reject the bone graft and refuse to dismantle it, so we may need to clean it and at this point leave nothing behind for the body to heal the wound normally. Then we may need to try a different bone reshaping technique if there is not enough bone to place an implant.

While there are no dietary restrictions after a bone graft, try eating on the opposite side of the graft area for about 3 to 4 weeks. And we mainly avoid hard and hot foods, as much as possible soft and cold or lukewarm foods.

The less the tongue plays with the graft, the more likely the graft is to heal. The less the patient does not put his finger in his mouth or something like a toothpick there, the better.

The membrane – which is a sterile bandage – holds the bone particles in the jaw. If the patient touches the area and lifts the membrane, then yes, the particles can come out.
