Your Dentist’s Reasoning for Recommending a Bone Graft

Posted .

Bone grafts can seem a little overwhelming and scary. But, the truth is, the bone graft isn’t as terrifying as you might think. In fact, there are many reasons why a bone graft can be extremely beneficial for you and your oral health. Those reasons are:

— The bone graft can help heal fractures in the bone, whether the fractures are old or new or fractures that have failed to heal after the initial attempt at treatment.

— The bone graft can promote fusion, or arthrodesis, between bones to bring them together and help them heal.

— The bone graft can restore or regenerate bone in the area that was lost or disintegrated as a result of disease, trauma, or infection.

— The bone graft can enhance the healing response of the bone tissue that is surrounding surgically placed appliances, like dental implants.

As you can see, the bone graft can help you in a myriad of ways. This is why you should be excited about treatment rather than nervous. Also, it’s important to remember that Dr. Yong Eon Park and our dental team will make you as comfortable and as relaxed as possible when you come into Bright Dental Care for treatment.
