What About Bone Grafts?

Pain near the jaw joint?

Bone defects develop as a result of surgery, trauma, infection or congenital malformations. Bone grafts will be needed to repair the damaged bone in the jaw and build it up until it is strong enough to hold the tooth or teeth that are missing. It is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from patient’s own body, an artificial, synthetic or natural substitute.

These grafts are bioresorbable and have no antigen-antibody reaction. The bone graft material can come from your own body (autogenous), a human tissue bank (allograft), or an animal tissue bank (zoograft) (xenograft). In some cases, the material used for a bone graft may be made in a lab (alloplast). They can be done by a general dentist or a specialist, like a Periodontist or an Oral surgeon.

Once the bone graft has been put in place, it gives your body room to heal itself. In other words, a dental bone graft is like a framework on which your own bone tissue can grow and heal.

In some cases, your dentist may use platelet-rich plasma along with a dental bone graft (PRP). This is made from a small amount of your own blood and is used to help your body heal and grow new tissues.

Most people who get dental bone grafts say they don't hurt much or at all. Just make sure you take all of your medicines as directed and closely follow your post-op instructions.
