Bone Grafting & Guided Tissue Regeneration in Elk Grove Village, IL
Bone grafting is a truly exciting area of our practice. Bone augmentation has increased the possibility of treatment and the success of many types of dental procedures, including dental implants, for our patients. Dr. Vishal Advani is highly skilled in the art of bone grafting and has provided numerous patients with successful bone grafts in our Elk Grove Village dental office.
Bone grafting is the process of bone regeneration and often precedes other necessary treatment such as implants, crowns, and bridges. Bone grafting increases the stability of your bone and strengthens your dental structure. Some procedures, such as implants, cannot be completed due to lack of sufficient bone structure in the area of treatment. If this is true in your case, bone grafting can once again make you a candidate for implants.
How Bone Grafting Works
The latest advances in bone grafting have made it more successful and more common than ever. Bone grafting treatment begins after a determination that your bone structure is insufficient for your dental health.
Material, either in the form of your own bone, donor bone, processed animal bone, or mineral bone substitute, is used to regenerate your bone structure. Each type of material is completely sterile and safe. Receiving any of these bone source materials is much like receiving a blood donation from a blood bank, and all materials are screened to prevent disease.
Dr. Advani will make sure you are completely numb and comfortable for your procedure. He will expertly place the bone augmentation material at the desired site inside your mouth and expertly secure it in place.
Once your bone grafting procedure is complete, Dr. Advani will advise you about healing times, how to promote proper healing, and activities to avoid while your body heals. He may prescribe post-treatment medication to assist in your comfort and recovery.
Success of Different Bone Grafting Materials
Making the choice between different bone grafting materials will be a matter for you and Dr. Advani to discuss. Which material is used for your procedure is dependent upon its availability and what is practical for your own individual treatment.
While certain materials are typically more successful than others, Dr. Advani will explain your options based on your individual condition and overall health.
Benefits of Bone Grafting
Bone grafting makes many more procedures available to individuals who otherwise would be unable to have necessary dentistry such as implants. In addition to supporting your dental structure, the underlying bone in your jaw and face is necessary for the support of your cosmetic outward appearance. Bone and tooth loss can cause your face to appear sunken and aged; thus, maintaining bone and teeth helps you to keep your facial structure intact.
