Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
Assessment of Quality and Quantity of Your Jawbone
When you visit Midtown Manhattan, NYC office for your initial dental implant consultation, one of the things we will want to do is to assess the quality and quantity of your jawbone through taking a CT scan. The dental implant post is inserted into your jawbone, and it needs a certain amount of bone to hold it securely in place.

What Is a Bone Graft?
A bone graft can be used to build up the height or width of bone in your jaw, and is placed during a small surgical procedure. If you only require a very small amount of bone, it might be possible to insert the graft at the same time as the dental implant. If the amount required is more significant then we will recommend placing the graft material prior to implant surgery, and leaving it to heal and fully integrate with your natural bone for between 3-6 months.

Although this does lengthen the overall treatment time, taking a cautious approach can help give the best and most long-lasting results.

Gum Graft Surgery in Astoria, NY

Gum graft surgery is necessary if you have advanced stages of gum recession and it’s been recommended to protect your teeth from further damage or bone loss. You may also choose to have the surgery for cosmetic reasons, such as to eliminate a “toothy” smile and achieve a more symmetrically even gum line. There are 3 types of gum graft surgery. Dr. Bokser, DDS can explain your options and help determine the best approach for enjoying a more beautiful smile today.

About Gum Grafting
Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth shrinks back or wears away, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth’s root. As a result your teeth start to look longer. The is the origin of the phrase “toothy” smile and when people start to look “long in the tooth.”

To perform a gum graft, your dentist at Precision Dental NYC removes healthy skin from another place in your mouth or uses synthetic tissue. The donor tissue helps repair receding gums that occur from gum disease. Gum graft surgery is always a last resort. Gum grafting is simple and safe when performed by a trained family dentist.

Our dental team ensures your comfort and safety during all dental procedures and always concentrates on your ultimate dental health first. They also practice cosmetic dentistry, so if you need any follow-up procedures to improve your appearance after gum grafting, you can get them done at the same place.

Why Do I Need a Gum Graft?
Grafting surgery is one of the best methods used to treat damaging gum disease. Periodontitis first begins with gingivitis, which is a milder form of gum disease. It usually causes gum inflammation and bleeding, which you might notice when you brush. Maintaining regular checkups and cleanings is the first line of defense against developing serious gum disease complications that require gum graft surgery.

You can take measures yourself because inflammation and receding gums often is exacerbated by brushing too strenuously or by using a hard-bristled toothbrush. In its early stages, periodontitis is the result of bacteria built up around your gum line.

Common Risk Factors for Gum Disease
Pay attention to your dental health so you can catch the early warning signs of gingivitis. If you start to develop sensitivity to hot and cold food and beverages, you may be in the early stages. Loose teeth, bad breath, bleeding gums, and pain when you chew are gum disease signs that you should tell your dentist about. The CDC reports other common risks that could make you more susceptible to periodontitis. These are:
- Having crooked teeth, because it’s more difficult to remove bacteria from hard-to-reach places
- Wearing dentures that don’t fit well and cause abrasions in your mouth
- Getting a bridge that doesn’t fit the space well
- Continuing to smoke or abuse alcohol or drugs
- Having some kind of immune system deficiency
- Inheriting a tendency for gum disease

Adjust your regular dental hygiene regimen according to your dentist’s instructions. Get additional treatments, like a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque from under your gums. Take antibiotics if an infection is present. If the disease isn’t relieved by these efforts, or if your gum recession is too severe, then you may need to undergo gum graft surgery.

The Basics of Gum Graft Surgery
Our dentist has access to state-of-the-art gum graft techniques. And while a local anesthetic is usually enough to keep you comfortable during the process, he also offers modern sedation dentistry If you’re very sensitive to pain or overly anxious about the procedure.

You don’t have to do anything special before you arrive at the dentist’s office. You should, however, make arrangements for a ride home because you may feel groggy after sedation.

Once you’re comfortable, small layers of skin are removed and stitched into place where the gum graft fills in your gums back to a healthy state. The end result, after you recovery from the surgery, is a better-looking smile and prevention from further deterioration.

Gum Graft Recovery
Gum graft recovery doesn’t take long at all. To help with any pain after the procedure, your dentist can give you a prescription for pain medication. Eating a diet of mainly soft foods helps keep discomfort at bay. You get a special anti-bacterial mouthwash to aid your healing. Follow your dentist’s directions so that gum disease doesn’t return.

Complications rarely happen, but a surgical procedure can lead to an infection or allergic reaction to materials used. Notify your dentist immediately if you have any unusual pain or other problems.
