Bone Augmentation

We’ll walk you through every stage of your treatment, looking after you all the way

An essential part of fitting a dental implant is having a solid foundation for the implant in the alveolar structure of the jawbone. In some patients, however, particularly those who have lost teeth from some kind of trauma or have had gum or periodontal disease, the integrity of the bone may be compromised. If there is insufficient bone to provide a sound base, however, all is not lost.

Strong foundations

Bone augmentation is a treatment that aims to encourage bone growth through the application of bone graft material to the implant site. This material is placed in the cavity where the tooth used to be, and attached to the top of the existing bone. The graft material contains collagens and proteins that promote growth of the bone structure in the implant site. Over time, the patient’s bone grows around the graft material, forming a strong new foundation for a dental implant to be situated in.

Straightforward procedure

The growth of the new bone can be a fairly lengthy process, depending on how much new bone is required to make a reliable implant site. Typically, the healing time will be between a few weeks and several months (or possibly longer) and in that time you may not be able to wear a denture or eat certain things. However, the graft procedure itself is simple and generally pain free.

Whatever treatment you choose with us at our dental practice in Swindon, you can be assured of the same excellent standard of patient care. We will walk you through every stage of your treatment, looking after you all the way. Book an appointment today.
