Bone Grafting – Bone Management

Joint and bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to fix joint and bone disorders. The procedure is useful for repairing damaged bone caused by trauma or joint issues and enhancing the stability of devices that have been installed, such as in total knee replacement and dental implants.

Implant therapy is only effectual when the bone structure in the jaw is strong enough. Initially, people with insufficient jawbone weren’t suitable candidates for implant therapy.

Now, however, modern dentistry has made great advances in restoring bone without sufficient dental tissue through bone grafting. Dental bone grafting essentially refers to augmenting bone in the jaw or the gum surrounding teeth.

Bone grafting treatment is performed to reverse bone loss. There are several causes that lead to loss or destruction of the jawbone, including periodontal disease, trauma, or even removable dentures that do not fit.

A bone graft can also be inserted to enhance the jawbone to make the installation of an implant post easier than it might be without this additional support. If an individual loses a natural tooth by surgical extraction or injury, the jawbone diminishes. To prevent this from occurring, a bone grafting process is used.

Several types of bone graft are available, such as:

  • Autogenous bone graft – The grafting bone is taken from a patient’s body, like the wrist, pelvis, ribs or the hips.
  • Xenograft – Usually taken from cows, sanitised and stored in a tissue bank.
  • Allograft – These are artificial or synthetic bones. They can also be cadaver bone sourced from bone banks.

Autogenous bone grafts are considered as the gold standard because they have the most predictable outcome of treatment although it may not be possible to manually source the graft from a patient’s own body. Unlike autologous grafts, allografts and xenografts, which don’t require a second site for surgery and may be donated in greater quantity, autografts are the only graft that requires a second surgical site.

Undine S.

Tor M.

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

Toby R.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Suzanne L.

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at new cross dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Dental Care Centre. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
