Bone Grafting & Guided Tissue Regeneration in Elk Grove Village, IL
Bone grafting is a revolutionary, modern dental advancement that increases oral health in our patients. Bone augmentation allows our dentist to treat our patients for many different dental procedures, from dental implants to dental prosthetics. Dr. Vishal Advani has had years of training in the science of bone grafting and has successfully improved the quality of life for many patients in our Elk Grove Village dental office.
Bone grafting is the process of bone regeneration and often precedes other necessary treatments 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 a 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.
To regenerate your bone structure, Dr. Advani may use bone from your own body or from a donor, mineral bone substitute, or processed animal bone. The procedure is not complicated, and each material is completely sterile and safe and 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 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.
The Success of Different Bone Grafting Materials
Choosing between different bone-grafting materials will be a matter for you and Dr. Advani to discuss. Which materials our dentists use for your procedure is dependent upon its availability and what is practical for your treatment.
While certain materials are typically more successful than others, Dr. Advani will explain your options based on your unique 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 essential for the support of your outward cosmetic 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.
