Effective and High-Quality Bone Loss Solution

Dental implants commonly require the use of bone graft surgery to restore the area.

Missing teeth could be a result of the jawbone deterioration, and it occurs when you suffer from gum disease, a traumatic injury or have had previous tooth extractions.

When bone loss occurs, the jaw deteriorates and cannot hold the implant in place.

If you’re looking to get dental implants, you may need treatment to restore your jaw to a healthy state, and this is when the bone graft procedure takes place.

Bone graft refers to a surgical procedure in which missing bone from a patient gets replaced with material from the patient’s body or artificial substitutes.

There are a couple of things to consider in the bone graft recovery process:

  • Feeling uneasy for a few days after a bone graft is natural. You can expect some swelling and inflammation after a dental bone graft since they are the most common side-effects from this type of surgery.
  • If you suffer from bruxism, you are more likely to be vulnerable to this situation. Another thing to expect after the dental bone graft is stiffness of the jaw muscles; this may cause issues and difficulty when opening the mouth for a few days after the surgery, but this inconvenience will resolve shortly after.
  • Smoking decreases the success rate of the bone graft surgery. Don’t do it!

Effects of surgery might be quite minimal and depend on each patient.

Proper post-surgery care is critical to prevent complications of infection, avoid pain or minimize swelling. Being aware of the symptoms and effects, and how to react to any of them, will help you through your recovery process.

  • Swelling: Swelling might not become a problem within minutes of the surgery but will reach its peak during the second or third day after the operation. You can minimize the swelling by using ice packs, applying them to the side of your face after the bone graft surgery.
  • Healthy Diet: Stay hydrated by drinking an average of six glasses of water the first day after the bone graft in San Diego. However, don’t use straws since the sucking motion can cause more bleeding. Also, eating soft foods is highly encouraged.
  • Maintain Healthy Habits: Proper oral hygiene is crucial to the healing of any oral surgery. After a bone graft, you can brush your teeth but rinse gently.
  • No Smoking: Smoking is out of the question for the next 48 hours after a bone graft surgery. Tobacco use slows the healing process down dramatically.
