Bone Graft Surgery – Smile With Confidence
Miguel de Cervantes rightly said, “Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.” Gone are the days when you had to compromise and settle for crooked, discoloured or inappropriately aligned teeth or other dental problems. Dentistry has been evolving rapidly to help people smile with confidence. Bone graft surgery in India has become increasingly popular in recent years.
What is bone graft surgery?
It refers to a procedure where the surgeon places a bone at a place where the positioned implant helps establishes a thicker area to support it.
Types of Bone Grafts
There are four different types of grafts – Autografts, Allografts, Isografts, and Xenografts. The grafting materials can be bone, cartilage, skin, veins, etc.
In this type of bone grafting, we take a bone from the patient’s body, mostly the mouth or hip. Autografts tend to create easy compatibility with the jawbone since harvested bone comes from the patient’s body itself. Autografts have some substantial advantages: the risk of bone rejection is very negligible, and the risk of disease is relatively low as the patient’s bone is shifted from one part of the body to another.
In this procedure, we take a bone from human bone donors in the event of their death. The bones collected under expert supervision from bone banks are tested thoroughly and sterilized to ensure that the bone is safe for use.
In this method, both the recipient and the donor are identical twins.
In this method, we take grafts from other species, most commonly pig.
The Success story of bone graft surgery at Richardsons dental and craniofacial Hospital!
At Richardsons Dental and Craniofacial Hospital, Dr.Sunil Richardson has successfully performed cleft lip and palate corrective surgery on a 10-year-old. The child’s parents fixed an appointment with us for the subsequent correction of the cleft alveolus. His CBCT displayed a sizable bony defect on the upper jaw on the respective cleft side. Such a correction on the cleft alveolus is known as Secondary Alveolar Bone Grafting. This defect usually requires to be filled with grafts. For him, a cancelous bone from the iliac crest was harvested to graft the defect.
Grafting was highly vital in this case as the defect did not allow the tooth to erupt in a better position, and it gives the patient one upper jaw or maxilla as one unit. One maxilla is essential for a nice, aesthetic, and a very well-balanced face.
If we did not graft this part of the defect, the upper jaw would dropdown. Not only that, but an asymmetric face also affects nasal base and the shape of the nose, forcing the nose to tilt towards the cleft side. So, this was not just an oral problem, but it had all the issues mentioned above. Corrective surgeries play a vital role in boosting one’s smile and appearance. Our goal is to have a society where people will have no such defects, as mentioned above, in the future through our advanced corrective procedures.
