Bone Grafting in Turkey

Bone grafting is sometimes necessary before dental implants if there is insufficient jawbone to support implants. Dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone and sufficient bone is needed for the implants to be successful.

About bone graft

A bone graft is surgery to replace the bone surrounding a tooth root to provide sufficient bone for the implant. Our dentist will take material for bone grafting from another part of the jaw or elsewhere in the body. The dentist will use synthetic material in certain cases.

Like other body tissues, bone will regenerate under the right conditions. By grafting bone, bone regeneration to hold the implants in place will be produced as the surrounding bone grows and fuses with implant material.

When the site surrounding the bone graft heals, you can have your implant surgery.

Need for a bone graft

It is important to have an initial consultation before the implant procedure. This evaluation will enable your dentist to identify if you need a bone graft procedure. People may require bone grafting due to:

  • Previous tooth extraction. The gap from an extracted tooth might affect the surrounding teeth and bone deterioration can take place
  • You have loose teeth or gum disease. Gum disease can also break down bone tissue
  • You’ve had a mouth injury leading to loss of bone
  • You’ve had mouth infections causing bone loss

Bone graft procedure

You can have bone grafting under local anaesthesia. The dentist can administer a sedative if you suffer from dental anxiety.

If you require a large graft, then the dentist may graft bone surgically from another part of your body such as a hip or shin. In this case you will need anaesthesia and the procedure should be performed in  hospital.

Our dentist will lift gum tissue from the affected area, place the bone graft, secure it, and stitch the gum over the graft. The requires somewhere around 60 to 90 minutes.

The dentist will remove the stitches after a week. Based on the grafting method, it usually requires 3 to 9 months for the graft to grow onto the natural bone, a process known as osseointegration. The implants will be fitted after osseointegration takes place.

How to take care of your bone graft

After you have had a bone graft, our surgeon will tell you how to care for the graft. By following aftercare instructions, you can lessen the risk of graft failure.

Unlike other surgical methods, a bone graft can lead to some discomfort though the pain is no more than if you had had a tooth out.  You can take paracetamol and Ibuprofen to lessen the pain and your dentist may prescribe antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.

Necessary materials for dental bone graft

Our dentist uses bone material which can include:

  • Artificial bone prepared in the laboratory
  • Your bone from the hip, shin or other body part
  • Artificial bone prepared in the laboratory
  • Bone from animal biomaterial

The price of dental bone graft

The cost of bone graft will depend on the exact requirement. Our dentist evaluates your oral health thoroughly during the consultation session to let you know the exact price of your bone graft. You can ask any questions related to the procedure, at the time of consultation.

Methods for bone grafting

Different methods for bone grafting include the following:

  • Onlay bone graft – Our dentist suggests this method if a tooth has been many years earlier. The dentist places bone grafting on either the top or at the sides of the bone. You need to wait for some time before placing implants to enable bone to fuse with the graft.
  • Block bone graft – The method involves fitting small bone blocks and then securing the grafts with screws. After the site recovers, our dentist will remove the screws to place the implants.
  • Particulate bone graft – Our dentist uses spongy particles for quick bone graft integration with the jawbone.

Different kinds of bone grafts

  • Socket preservation – When you need to have a tooth removed before the implant placement, our dentist will fill the socket left after extraction, with graft material. This will prevent any loss of thickness in your jawbone. Without the preservation of socket after extracting your tooth, the primary bone starts degenerating. This can affect your overall appearance and you may need another procedure in future.
  • Ridge preservation – An alveolar ridge is a part of the jaw which has sockets that hold tooth roots. When that ridge becomes narrow, it will split. Our dentist will position a graft to widen the gap. You will then need to have an implant inserted in new ridge. Have your bone graft procedure at New Teeth Clinic Turkey.
  • Bone regeneration – In this procedure our dentist creates space between the gum and jawbone to place a collagen membrane in. This will ensure the gum tissues do not grow in the space left by the missing tooth. Our dentist will place smaller particles of bone graft in the area for bone growth. Collagen is a natural substance and the body will absorb the collagen membrane within three months.
  • Black bone graft – Black bone graft is essential for restoring the natural shape of your jaw after severe bone loss. The bone graft may be taken from another part of your jaw.
