Jawbone Analysis and Treatment Planning
Bone grafting is a procedure used for dental implant patients who have lost a significant amount of bone mass after tooth loss, and their remaining bone tissue is insufficient to support an implant. If it is determined that bone grafting is required to move forward with your dental implant surgery, a comprehensive and thorough consultation will help Dr. Tischler organize the details of the procedure. Your medical and dental history will play large roles in your grafting procedure, as will the severity of the resorption of your bone. An interactive CT scan will provide visualization of your jaw's ridge, the anatomy of your sinus bone, and the surrounding bone that may be used for the graft. Essential to the pre-planning phase, Dr. Tischler completes a CT scan for every bone graft patient.
During your initial appointment, Dr. Tischler will discuss your temporary restoration options. Preferably, the prosthetic you wear while your jawbone heals will provide both aesthetic and functional benefits without affecting the grafted area. The bone graft healing period generally lasts between four and six months but is dependent on your individual treatment and personal needs. As with any of our treatments, your commitment to diligent hygiene and care are essential to the success of the bone graft and dental implant procedure.
At Tischler & Patch Dental, we offer sedation dentistry options to help you relax during your appointment and cope with dental anxiety. Once you're comfortable, Dr. Tischler will begin the meticulous, methodical, and carefully organized bone graft. The material that is used to augment your jawbone so that it can support dental implants - bone material from another location, Demineralized freeze-dried bone allografts, platelet-rich plasma xenografts, or connective tissue grafts - can dramatically improve the success of your treatment. Bone grafting is a major part of our New York practice and is essential for our patients who have waited a little too long to seek our help. Finding an expert such as Dr. Tischler who really focuses in bone grafting can be the difference between a smile that lasts a lifetime and one that requires constant repair. Dr. Tischler has been a proponent of DFDBA Putties for many years. The putties he uses offer the advantages of not migrating from the graft site and allowing a patient to wear a denture during healing of the graft.
