FAQs

Q: What is bone augmentation?

A: Bone augmentation, also known as bone grafting, is a surgical procedure used to rebuild or augment bone in the jaw.

It involves placing bone graft material into areas of the jawbone that have insufficient volume or density, providing a stable foundation for dental implants or other restorative procedures.

Q: Why might I need bone augmentation?

A: You may need bone augmentation if you have experienced bone loss in the jaw due to factors such as tooth loss, periodontal disease, trauma, or the natural aging process.

Insufficient bone volume or density can compromise the success of dental implant placement, as implants require adequate bone support for stability and integration.

Q: How is bone augmentation performed at Dental Fiume?

A: Bone augmentation at Dental Fiume is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the grafting needed.

Your oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to access the underlying bone and then place bone graft material into the deficient areas.

The incision is then closed, and the healing process begins. Over time, the bone graft material fuses with the surrounding bone, creating a stronger and more stable foundation for dental implants or other restorations.

Q: What types of bone graft material are used at Dental Fiume?

A: At Dental Fiume, we use a variety of bone graft materials, including autogenous bone (taken from your own body), allografts (donor bone), xenografts (animal bone), and synthetic bone substitutes. The type of graft material used will depend on factors such as your individual needs, the extent of bone loss, and your overall health.

Q: How long does it take to recover from bone augmentation surgery?

A: Recovery time from bone augmentation surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure and your body's natural healing process. You may experience some swelling, discomfort, and mild bleeding in the days following surgery, but these symptoms can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses. Your oral surgeon at Dental Fiume will provide detailed post-operative instructions to help ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
