How do you know that you are qualified to undergo a bone transplant? Do you want to improve your health as well as appearance?
First, you will need to undergo a physical examination to ascertain your fitness for surgery. Your doctor will also look at your medical history. It's important for them to be aware of any kinds of medications and supplements you are taking for proper analysis.
Also, you may be required to stay away from food the day prior the surgery to make sure it goes smoothly. Be sure to heed to the instructions offered by your doctor as you head towards surgery.
Your dentist will also help identify the right grafting material for perfect results. There are also mini implants that don't require you to undergo the surgery. With this, there's not much preparation like that which goes to bone grafting.
Bone grafting can also make your jaw look better. For instance, you can come in for advice on whether you need a graft if you are missing some teeth. Tissue bone grafting can stand in the place of a missing tooth.
Tissue grafting requires a compatible piece from a part of your body to act as foundation called biocompatible grafting. It can help you smile even when you've lost a tooth. Tissue grafting also hinders tissue loss which in return protects the jaw line from deteriorating.

Bone Grafting Process
The bone graft to be used will be decided on by the doctor after whom you will be put to sleep by anesthesia. An archaeologist will monitor you afterwards till when you recover.
An incision will then be made at the target area, by the surgeon and a shape similar to the graft material will be made. A screw, plate, pin, wire or cable will hold the graft in position. You will then be stitched after the graft is securely located and bandaged afterwards.
Recovery depends on how big the wound was but you may feel better in three months. The moment your tissue bone is well, you can then proceed with the implant surgery with direction from your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bone Grafting for Teeth?
Bone grafting for teeth, also known as alveolar ridge augmentation, refers to the surgical procedure done to increase the amount of bone around a tooth. Loss or damage of bone in this area affects the stability and/or aesthetics of the teeth and results in pain or other oral health problems.
After making an incision on top of the gum tissue, special instruments are used to create tunnels at the height where the gums should be covering your teeth. Your surgeon will take either donated bone (if available), autografts , or allografts . The donor’s marrow is then injected into these tunnels to stimulate new growth around your teeth. Unstimulated bone can also be used to make grafts. The new bone will help give your teeth more support and stability, making them easier to maintain.
How does bone grafting work?
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to treat bone fractures or weak bones It is common for people with conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer, and osteogenesis imperfect can (brittle-bone disease), which cause the risk of having brittle bones that may crush or break easily under pressure. In addition to being used as a treatment for these conditions, bone grafting also be used as an invasive procedure to correct poor alignment of teeth and jaws.
Bone grafts are typically placed in the following situations:
· To provide support when a tooth has been removed or needs to be replaced by a dental implant. Bone from the palate is usually taken from the roof of the mouth, and bone from the chin or hip is usually harvested.
· To correct a jaw deformity such as congenital vertical overgrowth of one side, or to treat an improperly aligned lower jaw (malocclusion). In this case, additional bone might be needed taken from the iliac crest (hip area), ribs, skull, skull base, occipital bone (back of the head), or tibia (shinbone) by using special harvesting techniques.
· If your doctor determines that your jaw bones are too thin and cannot support dental implants. In this case, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove a portion of the mandible or maxilla and replace them with graft material.
Grafts are usually taken from the iliac crest (hip area), ribs, skull, skull base, occipital bone (back of the head), or tibia (shinbone)
Bone material is then sculpted into place and allowed to grow into the surrounding tissue.
The implant site is prepared in a similar fashion to when implants are placed without grafting. This involves removing diseased or damaged bone and preparing the surface so that it can bond with an implant. The implant is then placed and allowed to cure before connecting it to prosthetic teeth on either side.
