Bone Grafting Procedure For Dental Implants
Bone grafting is not a common phrase, even for those who have visited the dentist. However, it is a procedure done, especially on patients who may be given dental implants.
Despite this procedure being less known, it should not make you feel nervous or afraid. Bone grafting is a normal part of dental care and is painless for the most part. Bone grafting happens during the preparation stage just before dental implant surgery. The bone grafting procedure is crucial in helping regenerate bone that is lost as a result of:
- Gum Disease
- Tooth decay
- Trauma and injury
- Bone loss

FAQ About Bone Grafting Treatment
Not at all! We do them in our office every day. They are an outpatient procedure, and patients are typically sedated throughout the entire process.
The bone graft should not be painful, and you will be ready to receive your dental implants after the graft is complete. The bone graft is simply the first step most people must take to be ready to enjoy their beautiful new replacement tooth.
The patient will be given antibiotics for infection prevention after the bone graft procedure is completed. Pain medication is given in some cases as well. Almost everyone who receives bone grafts experiences no pain and will do just fine with the antibiotics.
In addition, your dentist must also wait for the bone graft to fuse with bones already in your mouth. Unfortunately, each mouth is different, so there is no exact time frame regarding how quickly this fuses.
You will have to come in for regular checkups until your dentist determines you are ready for the implants. It usually takes anywhere from three months to an entire year for the bone graft to fuse with the natural bones in your mouth.
