Bone grafting is a precise, effective procedure that can restore strength to a weakened area and halt bone recession. In most cases, your surgeon will perform this treatment to prepare your jaw for dental implants placement. However, bone grafting can also be an effective way to improve jaw strength after injuries or other concerns. Since it is a specialized procedure, many patients have a number of bone grafting questions. At our Lincoln, NE, practice, Dr. Andrew R. Glenn provides compassionate and personalized care, and he is always happy to address any concerns you might have. In addition to providing answers to some common bone grafting questions, you can also schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Glenn to learn more.
After losing teeth, patients can experience reduced blood flow to their jawbones. Unfortunately, this jaw recession can greatly affect the success rate of a dental implants treatment. By undergoing a bone grafting procedure, Dr. Glenn can restore lost volume and create a strong foundation for the titanium posts.
Other situations in which you may benefit from bone grafting include:
The cost of a bone grafting procedure varies from patient to patient, as more complex cases will involve higher prices. However, Dr. Glenn works hard to make his treatments affordable, and he can often tailor your procedure to fit your budget. In addition, we also offer a variety of financing options, including CareCredit℠.
Each patient’s bone grafting procedure is unique. Typically, however, you will experience minimal discomfort following your surgery. If you require a more complex procedure, your recovery should be comparable to healing after impacted molar extraction.
Dr. Glenn performs four types of bone grafting:
Dr. Glenn has been performing bone grafting nearly every day for more than 10 years. He also frequently performed bone grafting procedures while completing his medical residency. He takes a personalized approach to treatment, and he will keep you fully informed about your health and surgical options so that you can choose the treatment that is most appropriate for your goals and lifestyle.
Dr. Glenn is dedicated to using the latest technology to improve all aspects of your care. Our advanced imaging tools are especially important when planning and executing bone grafting procedures. Cone beam computerized tomography (CT) scans will create a three-dimensional image of your jaw and skull. Using this digital model, Dr. Glenn can develop a highly precise treatment plan to meet your needs.
