About Bone Grafting in Canton, GA

A radiant smile with sexy teeth is what every team member at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA is committed to giving every patient. However, your smile will only be dazzling if it's healthy first. Having a strong jawbone is important to the health of your mouth. When your jaw is weak from physical trauma or missing teeth, a bone graft can help augment the strength of your jawbone so it will be able to hold both dental implants or removable dentures. At MINT dentistry in Canton, GA, bone grafting surgery is often recommended to prepare your mouth for dentures or dental implant surgery to replace missing or damaged teeth. Set up an initial consultation with one of the skilled practitioners at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA to learn more about jawbone augmentation. MINT dentistry's board-certified doctors are experienced in bone grafting surgery to help you get a healthy and attractive smile.

Am I a Candidate for Bone Grafting?

A weakened jaw can come as the result of multiple things, including periodontal disease, or following blunt trauma to your face. Atrophy can also weaken the jawbone if a tooth or teeth has not been replaced with a dental implant. Bone grafting gives your jaw the necessary strength to prepare you for dentures or a dental implant, but it's important to understand that the process will take time. Some procedures can take months to finish, but you will have a restored jawbone that will support your dental implants or dentures for better oral health. To help us decide whether you are an ideal candidate for bone grafting, one of our skilled dentists will take digital images and perform a comprehensive examination during your initial consultation at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA.

How Does Bone Grafting Work?

Before your bone grafting procedure begins, you’ll be seated in one of the massaging treatment chairs and administered the sedation method that was discussed during your initial consultation with the team. Once your graft is prepared for placement, your MINT dental team will make incisions in your gums so it can be attached to your jawbone. Proteins and collagens are added to the graft to speed integration. Finally, the incisions in your gums will be closed and thoroughly rinsed. The grafted material will be given time to heal and integrate with your natural bone structure.

After the Bone Grafting Procedure

Over time, the natural bone in your jaw will integrate with the graft, taking on an average of 6 – 9 months to heal. It is especially important during this time to maintain an optimal oral care routine at home with gentle brushing and flossing, plus any products recommended by your dentist (such as a prescribed mouthwash or antibiotics). We will schedule your follow-up appointments at MINT dentistry so your dentist can evaluate your progress and determine when your jawbone is strong enough for a dental implant or dentures. To continuously improve your oral health, our dentists suggest scheduling biannual dental examinations and cleanings at our Canton, GA facility.
