In order to ensure sufficient anchorage for the prosthesis, the implants must be placed in a sufficient bone volume. When the bone volume is insufficient, it can be surgically increased with bone grafting.
Bone grafts are followed by a period of healing, during which pain or inflammation may occur. A postoperative follow-up and a possible medication prescription will promote the good progress of this healing period. Your dentist will adjust the postoperative recommendations according to your case.
A gum graft can restore a nice smile while preserving the teeth. Indeed, teeth can become exposed when unhealthy gums are receding.
The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, same as for a cavity filling. It lasts from one to two hours and includes the following steps:
Following your gum graft, we will prescribe antibiotics. Analgesics and anti-inflammatories are also very effective against pain. A complete postoperative follow-up will be done until the area is completely healed.
