Bone Graft Surgery – Restore Your Smile and Confidence with This Advanced Procedure
Miguel de Cervantes rightly said, “Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond.” This shows how valuable every tooth is. Gone are the days when you had to compromise and settle down with crooked, discoloured or inappropriately aligned teeth or with any other dental problems. Dental industry is constantly advancing and changing to improve your smile. Bone Grafting is one such procedure and Bone graft surgery in India is increasingly becoming popular now.
What exactly is bone graft surgery?
It is a method where a surgeon places bone at place where an implant will be positioned to establish 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, bone will be taken from the patient’s body himself, mostly from the mouth or hip. Autografts tend to create easy compatibility with the jawbone since the bone is harvested from the patient’s body itself. Autografts has some substantial advantages: The risk of bone rejection is very negligible, and the risk of disease is relatively low as patient’s own bone is shifted from one part of the body to another part.
In this procedure, bone is taken from the human bone donors in the event of their death. Bones will be collected under expert supervision from the bone banks. The bone will be put through number of tests and sterilization techniques to ensure that the bone is safe to be used.
In this method, both the recipient and the donor are identical twins.
In this method, grafts will be taken from other species most commonly pig.
Success story of bone graft surgery at Richardsons dental and craniofacial Hospital!
At Richardsons dental and craniofacial hospital, Dr.Sunil Richardson successfully performed cleft lip and palate corrective surgery on a child. A 10-year-old’s parents fixed an appointment with us for his subsequent correction of the cleft alveolus. His CBCT displayed a large bony defect on the upper jaw on his respective cleft side. Correction of this cleft alveolus is known as Secondary Alveolar Bone Grafting. This defect usually requires to be filled with grafts. For him, a cancellous bone from the iliac crest was harvested to graft the defect.
Grafting was highly vital in this case as the defect will 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 nice, aesthetic, and a very well-balanced face.
If this part of the defect was not grafted, the upper jaw would drop down. Not only that, due to asymmetric face, nasal base and the shape of the nose would get affected. This ultimately would force the nose to tilt towards the cleft side. So, this was not just the case with oral problem, but it had all the above-mentioned issues in context. Thus, corrective surgeries play a very important 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.
