Jawbone Site Preservation Treatments

Dental site restoration treatments add density to your jawbone in areas where there has been bone loss. This treatment is often done in conjunction with gum disease treatments or before getting a dental implant because implants rely on the jawbone for support. Site restoration helps preserve the health and structure of your smile. If you have had issues with tooth decay or gum disease, or are missing adult teeth you might be a candidate for dental jawbone restoration treatments.

How Does Dental Site Restoration Work Exactly?

Your jawbone can deteriorate for a variety of reasons. Tooth decay and gum disease can both weaken and erode your jaw bone. This can lead to your adult teeth wiggling and eventually detaching prematurely. If you are looking into getting a dental implant to replace a lost adult tooth, one of the first things a dentist will need to do is take X-rays to look at the health of your jawbone in that area. 

Jawbone site restoration works by placing a bone graft in the area that needs to be restored. A bone graft encourages your body to repair the damage or missing tissue. A bone graft is almost like a scaffold that your body will naturally build around. By providing the framework, your body can start rebuilding the jawbone tissue around the graft. This is often recommended as part of a dental implant procedure. Whether you are getting a singular dental implant or are looking into full arch dental implants (implants that replace a full row of teeth) it is necessary to make sure the bone is dense enough to support the implants.

When Would A Patient Need Dental Site Restoration?

Dental site restoration is recommended in a handful of scenarios. Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, can significantly destroy the jawbone which can cause your teeth to fall out prematurely. If you are already being treated for gum disease, you might need site restoration as part of your gum disease treatments. If you have an infected tooth that is being removed, a bone graft might be recommended as well, since tooth decay that is severe enough to warrant tooth extraction usually impacts the jawbone as well. 

The two most common reasons to need site restoration around your jawbone is to support either dental implants or dentures. Rebuilding and strengthening the jaw is often necessary in order to make sure your mouth can support tooth replacement treatments, this is especially true when looking into restoration treatments that replace multiple teeth. 

Site Restoration Treatment Timeline

Site restoration will be recommended after a dental exam. Your dentist will take scans or x-rays to determine how much bone loss you have experienced, and then will provide a tailored treatment plan that can help restore your smile and oral health. 

Like many dental treatments, site restoration begins with numbing the treatment area with local anesthetics. A small incision is made in the gums that allows the dentist to access the treatment area. The bone grafting material is placed and covered with a membrane. The gum tissue is then closed up usually with stitches. 

After your treatment you may experience swelling, bruising, or discomfort. These symptoms are normal and usually subside over the course of a few days. Symptoms can also be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Your dentist might also provide you with antibiotics to prevent infection. Your dentist will also schedule follow-up appointments to check on progress and to remove stitches if necessary.
