Bone Grafting Benefits
Bone grafting can help to improve the strength and stability of the jawbone, which can, in turn, lead to better oral health. We can use this procedure to treat many conditions, including periodontal disease, tooth loss, and jawbone deterioration. Additionally, bone grafting can help to improve the appearance of the smile by creating a more symmetrical look.
Bone Grafting Procedure
We can perform the procedure in our dental office in Durango, Colorado. The grafting material can be either artificial or natural.
We will start the procedure with a consultation. We will enjoy taking the time to get to know you and understand your dental concerns and goals. We’ll perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and jaw structure, including possibly taking x-rays. Then we’ll present you with a personalized treatment plan to address your concerns.
If we determine that bone grafting is the best treatment for you, we will schedule a follow-up appointment. During this appointment, we will provide an adequate level of anesthesia – there is virtually no pain during the procedure as we will sedate you. We will carefully make an incision in the gum tissue, place the grafting material in the area and close the incision with sutures.
The Bone Grafting Recovery Period
The recovery period following bone grafting is typically relatively short. You may experience some swelling and discomfort for the first few days, but you can control this with medication. Following all of our post-operative instructions is essential to ensure a successful recovery.
In most cases, the grafting procedure is successful, and the patient can resume normal activities within a short time. Most patients can enjoy long-term success with their dental implants with proper care and follow-up.
Bone Grafting Cost
The cost of bone grafting will vary depending on the type of procedure you need and the extent of treatment. We will work with you to understand any budgeting concerns and provide accurate, up-front cost estimates to help you decide if the procedure is right for you.
It might be helpful if you talk to your insurance provider about any costs that will be covered. And speak to us about any budgeting concerns you may have. We believe that concerns about the price should not get in the way of dental care, and we can offer some solutions that may help you manage costs.
