To give you the answers you’re looking for, he would like to share the answers to questions that are commonly asked. Those questions are:
Question No. 1: What is bone grafting?
Answer: Bone grafting is a treatment that involves our oral surgeon replacing missing bone with natural or synthetic bone to give you a stronger jaw, mouth and oral health.
Question No. 2: Why is it important to preserve bone and surrounding gum tissue?
Answer: Because your bone and tissues support your mouth and face. When you fail to care for and preserve them, they can become weak and fragile, resulting in lost teeth and even collapsed bone. This can make the smile very unhealthy and unattractive.
Question No. 3: How long does it take for a bone graft to heal?
Answer: It usually takes two to four months of recovery following bone graft treatment.
