Bone Graft

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. However, they cannot be placed in all circumstances. One person must have sufficient mass and volume in the bone that receives them. Otherwise, they will not fit well into the jawbone. In that case, It is possible to ensure the success of the implantation by first performing a bone graft. Your Ottawa general dentist offers this surgery at General Dentist Solutions.

When is bone grafting necessary?

Implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone and onto which a crown, bridge or denture can be placed. For the implantation to be successful, the bone must be deep and thick enough. If this is not the case, the implants will not have the necessary foundation to attach properly. This is when bone grafting comes in handy: it helps to increase the mass and volume of bone that has resorbed.

What are the reasons for bone loss?

  • Age: with time, cell regeneration slows down. The effects of wear and tear are greater as we age;
  • Tooth loss: tooth roots stimulate the bone into which they are inserted. When they fall out or are removed, this bone stimulation ceases, causing loss of mass and volume. This occurs rapidly after the loss or extraction of one or more teeth;
  • Periodontal disease: the bacteria that cause it can attack the bone and cause serious

What types of transplants
are offered at
our Ottawa clinic?

  • Autografting: A portion of bone is first removed from the person being treated. This sample isused as a graft.
  • The synthetic graft: the graft used is made of a biocompatible material;
  • Allograft: a natural graft from an anonymous donor bank is used. It is treated in such a way as to limit the risks of rejection.

What are the stages
of bone grafting in Ottawa?

  • If it is an autograft, a piece of bone is first removed;
  • The dentist makes an incision in the area to be treated, attaches the graft (artificial or natural) and then covers it with a synthetic membrane. The latter has the function of holding it in place and isolating it in order to stimulate bone growth;
  • During the healing period, the operated site heals and the graft integrates into the jaw. The jaw bone then regains its mass and volume.
