Bone Grafting If you are going to spare the time and expense to visit your Rancho Cucamonga dentist for a tooth replacement, you want to know that your new teeth are going to last. After all, why would you go to the effort of replacing your teeth only to have them fall out again?

Choosing a qualified Rancho Cucamonga dentist to do your tooth replacement is one crucial factor that will determine whether or not your procedure will be effective. Another is making sure that your tooth replacements have a solid foundation to rest on. If you don't have that firm foundation already, you can achieve it with a bone graft from John Stockdale, D.D.S. at Renaissance Dental Care.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a common dental procedure in which bone or another comparable material is used to strengthen the jaw bone in order to provide the support needed for a tooth replacement procedure. While the bone grafting procedure itself will not take very long, you should expect a recovery period of several months in order to allow your jawbone time to heal and strengthen.

Where Does the Bone or Other Material Come From?

Your Rancho Cucamonga dentist will source material for your bone graft from one of three places: your own bone, a donor bone, or synthetic bone material. If your dentist uses your own bone, they will likely harvest it from your chin, jaw, shin, or hip.

Is Bone Grafting Safe?

Yes, bone grafting is considered very safe. You will need to be in good health before you can undergo the procedure, however.

If you are considering visiting a Rancho Cucamonga dentist for a tooth procedure such as dental implants, you will want to make sure your jaw bone is as strong as possible. Speak to Dr. Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care to find out if bone grafting may be right for you, and to get all of the information you need to help the entire process go as smoothly as possible.
