Can Dental Implants Work for You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

What is a Bone Graft?

A bone graft is a procedure that replaces missing or damaged bone tissue with healthy, new tissue. The graft makes it possible for the body to regenerate bone and restore the natural structure of the jaw.

A bone graft is often performed after a tooth is lost or extracted. If a tooth is lost, the jaw may shrink and change shape, affecting your ability to receive dental implants. A bone graft can build up the bone where the tooth used to be, ensuring there is enough bone in the jaw to support the implant.

Procedure For a Bone Graft

While preparing for bone grafting surgery, your dentist will first take 3D images of your mouth, allowing them to plan for your procedure. Then, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb your mouth, so you won’t feel pain during the surgery.

A bone graft is a minor procedure, and it usually does not require an overnight stay. The affected area will be numbed prior to your dental procedure. Then, the graft will be inserted into the space. You may receive a graft that is made from synthetic material or from your own bone.

The bone provides structural support for your jaw. When the bone is weakened, it can lead to changes in your bite, including misalignment. A bone graft can restore strength and function to your weakened bone structure.

What Happens After a Bone Graft?

After a bone graft procedure, you might feel some pain. Your dentist can prescribe pain relievers to help you manage any discomfort. Thus, it’s important that you follow the instructions of your dentist and take any medications as directed.

To protect the bone graft, our Dentist Colorado Springs CO might recommend that you avoid specific activities, such as biting down on hard foods. We would also recommend a soft food diet for a few weeks.

How Long Does a Bone Graft Last?

The length of time a bone graft lasts depends largely on the type of graft used. A bone graft that is placed and has healed properly can last for a lifetime.

However, it’s important to remember that once a tooth is gone, the bone that once supported that tooth is no longer fully there. Therefore, the bone will resorb and not grow back.

Bone Graft FAQ

A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure in which bone tissue is transplanted to repair or regenerate bone in the jaw that has been lost due to injury, gum disease or tooth extraction.

Most people experience very little pain during the procedure due to the use of local anesthesia. However, there may be some soreness and swelling after the surgery.

Healing time varies depending on several factors such as the size of the implant, your overall health, and how well you follow post-operative instructions from your dentist. Generally, it takes anywhere from three to six months for a dental bone graft to fully heal.

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved such as infection or rejection of the implanted material by your body’s immune system.

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants, especially if they have uncontrolled health problems like diabetes or heart disease. Your oral surgeon will evaluate your individual condition to determine whether or not you’re a suitable candidate for an implant.

There are several types of materials used in a dental bone graft such as autografts (from patient’s own body), allografts (from human donors) and synthetic materials made from calcium-based compounds.

The cost of a dental bone graft depends on various factors such as the type of material used and size of the implant needed among others factors which mean the price vary significantly among patients.

Most dental insurance policies do not cover the cost of bone grafting procedures, but some health insurance plans may cover a portion of the procedure cost. Contact your provider for more information.

Your dentist will provide you with instructions on what to eat and avoid after surgery. Generally, you should avoid hard, crunchy foods and stick to soft foods like soups and smoothies during the healing period.

With proper care, a dental bone graft can last a lifetime since it becomes part of your natural bone structure over time. However, poor oral hygiene or certain diseases may increase the risk of implant failure.

Mike Ferguson
I have been going to North End Dental for about three years now, and my experience with them has exceeded all expectations. Professional and friendly are words to describe everyone from the front office, to the dental personnel, to the dentists. A shout out to Abby who is so skilled, thorough, and caring in her work as a hygentist, and also to Dr. Moore whose expertise, experience, and precision in his work are so much appreciated! North End Dental is top notch!
Lynn Wolfe
I broke a crown off in the front of my mouth. Went to North End Dental to see about getting it fixed. I also had other teeth missing making it hard to eat. It also made me uncomfortable meeting people. They got me in same day I walked in and did the exam. They recommended a treatment plan and in a week I had my first appointment to fix my upper teeth. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Really pleased with outcome of the temporary crowns. Can’t wait to see the permanent crowns in 2 weeks. Would absolutely recommend anyone at North End Dental!!!
Shawn McCaslin
Dr Moore is remarkably caring and attentive. My teeth don’t fit together well, and Dr Moore is reaching out to my orthodontist to work on my behalf. Abby is a highly proficient dental hygienist. My teeth are sensitive to ultrasound, and Abby worked to minimize discomfort, while still doing a great job of cleaning my teeth.
Josh Kacirek
This is the first time ever that i am excited for the future of my smile. To not live in pain everyday. It wouldnt have been able to happen if it was for North End Dental. I say that with experience as i have tried 75+ other dentists to have my teeth fixed and came up with the same answer, dental implants are for the rich. That was until i came here and they said let us work with you, let us help you. So glad i found this dentist.
Zoey Ballard
After moving here from out of state, my husband and I were very nervous to start with a new dentist. We were/are so very impressed with the entire experience we’ve had since we’ve started coming here. I saw Dr. Umphlett whom was gentle, kind and extremely thorough. My husband saw Dr. Moore whom was equally gentle, kind, and thorough. We both see Abby as our hygienist, she is awesome! Not only is North End Dental absolutely beautiful on the inside, the people who work here are so kind and make sure that you are taken care of. We will not be seeing another dentist as long as North End Dental is in business. Thank you North End for changing our perspective on dentistry and for taking such good care of us!
Merrina Mendez-Itima

Dylan Cross
Went in after I had a really bad trip and fall, so I was not doing so great. They were extremely kind and professional with me. I felt calm throughout the whole visit, and they were very accommodating to my needs. Kjersti was absolutely lovely and so caring. Highly recommend!
Christine Kascak
I am currently unemployed and temporarily on Medicaid. I am a periodontal patient and also in Clear Correct treatment. The care plan and financing are pretty reasonable. I tried a cheaper route elsewhere, but I regretted it and returned to North End Dental. I love the staff and the office. I wouldn’t trust my oral health care to anyone else!
