Why You May Not Be Able to Get Dental Implants Following a Bone Graft


Posted on 1/20/2018 by Tricia Ramsay
Gum Graft Huronia Oral Surgery Group Ontario L4N 8J6The question about getting a dental implant after a bone graft has been one of the most common problem people face when undergoing surgery.

While it can be relatively convenient to have the procedures done in one sitting, the complication of having a dental implant immediately done after a bone graft surgery far outweighs the aesthetics you are looking for.

Waiting Ensures You the Implants Will Be Stable and Secure

It is typically advised to wait for a couple of months before getting a dental implant so that the grafted bone becomes stable. As with having the implant, making sure that it is securely put in place is important, so not only will you get the functionality you need, but the aesthetic appeal of having a fresh set of teeth.

Although it is entirely possible to get simultaneous procedures, the ultimate decision will be considered by the dentist inasmuch as stability and a secure support for the dental implant is established.

Preservation of Soft Tissues Between Your Teeth Need to be Considered
Because the bone graft allows your jaw bone to be stable enough to support the dental implant, you also have to consider the preservation of the soft tissues between your teeth. This is to ensure that the dental implant fits snugly without causing much inconvenience.

It is also important to consider that precisely timing your dental implant after a bone graft will ensure that your teeth do not shift in the absence of one tooth. It would make the implant restoration problematic and cause bone atrophy, which needs further surgery.

Waiting for no longer than 3 or 4 months following your bone grafting will not only ensure a stable and secure gums to place the implant in, but also eliminates the risk of further deterioration of your jaw line.
