Dental Bone Grafts in Clearwater

Missing teeth for an extended period can result in jawbone atrophy, which leads to resorption and bone loss. Often, this leads to low quantity and quality bone—which can lead to long-term consequences (like facial structure changes) and disqualification for certain dental procedures (such as dental implants).

Fortunately, the Beyond Dentistry Clearwater team offers bone grafts, an oral surgery where new bone material is placed into an area after bone loss.

What is a dental bone graft?

Bone grafts are used to help repair bones that have been damaged by trauma, infection, or disease. Additionally, bone grafts can build up inadequate bone to support dental implants. The new bone material can come from the patient’s body, a donor, or synthetic material—and your doctor can help you decide which material is most suitable for you.

When Is A Bone Graft for Tooth Implant Recommended?

Bone grafts are typically used to prepare your mouth if your natural jawbone is not dense or strong enough for a dental implant. Moreover, Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham might recommend a bone graft to:
  • Improve the success of dental implants
  • Help heal bone fractures
  • Aid in the repair of bone defects caused by injury or disease
  • Improve the function and appearance of your teeth

Our Bone Graft Dental Procedure Process: What to Expect

  • Initial Consultation: At your initial consultation, Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham will let you know if a dental bone graft is necessary for your treatment plan. Also, your team will go over the ideal bone graft material. Several types of bone grafts can be used, depending on the patient’s specific needs. Furthermore, your dentist will consider the age of the patient, the health of the patient, and the location of the bone graft.
  • Prep, Numbing, and Sedation: Before any oral surgery, ensuring that the patient is comfortable is the priority. Therefore, we insist on providing local anesthesia and sedation dentistry before a dental bone graft procedure.

  • Performing Oral Surgery: In a dental bone graft procedure, Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham will make a small incision in your gums and jaw. Then, they will pack bone granules into the area.

  • Healing and Recovery: Over time, the natural bone will heal around these granules, strengthening your jaw. Recovery from oral surgery can take several weeks. During this time, it is essential to follow your oral surgeon’s instructions for caring for your mouth and gums. Regular checkups with our Beyond Dentistry Clearwater team can ensure that the bone graft is healing properly.

Professional Cleaning

To start things off, we’ll perform a complete cleaning of your teeth and gums, using special tools to remove any plaque and tartar that may have built up along the gumline. Essential aspects of your cleaning will include thorough flossing between your teeth in all those hard-to-reach places, and scraping off plaque that has accumulated along the gum line. To finish the cleaning process, we’ll polish your teeth, leaving you feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to smile.

Any Necessary X-Rays

If you’re new to the office or haven’t had dental x-rays in a while, your Clearwater dentist may recommend that you take some during your preventive care appointment. Dental x-rays let us see what’s going on beneath the surface of your smile, giving us the ability to find issues that may not be visible otherwise. With x-rays, we’re able to make more accurate diagnoses and create more effective and efficient treatment plans.

Comprehensive Exam

Your dentist will review your x-rays and then take a thorough look at your teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth. If we spot any issues, we’ll take the time to educate you on our findings, so you can keep your dental health on the right track. We make it our goal to keep you educated about your oral well-being, so you can make the right decisions for your smile.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Using the information we’ve gathered with your exam and x-rays, we’ll work together with you to craft a treatment plan customized for your unique oral health needs, budget, and lifestyle. If everything looks good, we’ll simply schedule your next routine cleaning and checkup.
