What Berkeley, CA patients need to know about dental bone grafting

Transcendentist in Berkeley, CA offers a wide variety of advanced dental procedures, uniquely tailored to optimize your wellness. While an oral surgery such as bone grafting might sound a bit intimidating, it is usually quite minor and low risk when properly performed. You can feel confident knowing that your oral health is in skilled, compassionate hands with Dr. Ruhi Sangha and Dr. Praj Kamat.

Why might you need bone graft surgery?

Bone is a living tissue, with surprising regenerative properties. However, it can be damaged by an infection such as gum disease. Furthermore, it needs the physical stimulation of tooth roots. When a tooth is lost, the development of new bone cells in that area slows dramatically, while old cells continue dying. As a result, the quantity and strength of the bone deteriorates, a condition known as resorption.

Dental implant treatment is the only tooth replacement option that can slow or stop bone resorption, because it replaces the roots. However, this can be a bit of a “catch 22,” because a solid foundation of healthy bone tissue is necessary to place implants. We often recommend a bone graft for implant placement preparation. The procedure also may be used to correct bone defects caused by disease or traumatic injury.

About the procedure

We use highly purified and refined allograft bone grafting material. This is preferable to a bone transplant from one area of your body to another, because it shortens the procedure and eliminates the need for a second surgical site. The grafting material is placed and then covered with a special type of membrane. It acts as a scaffold, promoting natural cellular growth. Over time, your own natural bone will overtake the area, while the grafting material and membrane dissipate.
