Jaw bone transplant is an essential indication in cases of preparation for implants where the jaw bone is much deficient. The quality of the jaw bone is not guaranteed to lead to unstable dental Implant. This surgery applies to people who have lost teeth for a long time, or those with poor quality jaw bone. So does jaw bone transplant hurt?
Together we learn specifically about the jaw bone transplant in the person preparing dental implants.
Why do we need a jaw bone transplant?
Normally, when a tooth is gone, the alveolar bone there tends to disappear.
Why? Because when a tooth is lost, the space left by the root will not have anything to hold; Therefore, according to the natural mechanism of the body, the jawbone area will gradually disappear.
If the patient chooses to restore lost teeth with removable dentures or porcelain bridges; Then only “cover the eyes” of the external sensory aspect of the teeth. In fact, underneath the gum layer, the jawbone is still disappearing over time.
Jaw bone resorption causes a lot of bad consequences for our body. Not only lose aesthetics such as sucked cheeks, completely toothless, face deviation, sagging skin looks old … but important is affecting chewing function and existence of neighboring teeth.
These are the reasons why you need to choose the right solution to restore the lost tooth.
- Dental Implant perfectly replace a tooth that is unfortunately lost.
- The Implants help keep the jaw bone from disappearing. From there, keep the structure of the teeth and the face from being deviated. There are no signs of aging and the bite still ensures good chewing.
- Jaw bone transplant helps ensure and increase the quality of the jawbone. From there, creating good conditions for the implant to have sustainability.
When to need a jaw bone transplant?
There will be many situations that require a jaw bone transplant. But we will discuss the jaw bone transplantation in preparation for dental Implant.
After the tooth is gone, the longer it remains empty, the jaw bone will disappear more. For patients who have lost teeth for a long time, it is sure to need a jaw bone transplant before implantation.
Or for patients who have just extracted teeth and want to have dental implants immediately, still need a jaw bone transplant. Because the dental implant is just a straight metal pillar implanted in the alveolar bone, it is impossible to cover all the holes left by the root. So need to fill these areas and increase stability for dental implants.
@ With jaw bone transplant case before starting dental Implant
After bone grafting, this material is naturally mixed with blood and stimulates real bone to grow more. The grafted bone and real bone are closely linked together into a solid mass.
Then, the doctor will implant Titanium pillars into the jaw bone. And wait for the bone integration to take place. After the Implant is stable, will continue to perform the above porcelain dental restorations. And we have a new, complete tooth that is stronger than the real one.
@ With jaw bone transplant case concurrently with dental implants.
Jaw bones and grafted bones will also link together and integrate into the Titanium pillar body afterwards.
This is not applicable to everyone.
So does bone grafting hurt?
Bone grafts are not painful in nature.
The feeling that you are frightened of is just a little processing on the gum tissue. But during surgery the gums will also be anesthetized. So the whole process of performing bone grafting is painless.
@ Some steps to perform jaw bone transplant that you can refer to are as follows:
- The doctor checks your general health (according to medical history, blood test if needed …). And check specifically the jaw bone area that needs bone grafting through the X-ray film / CT cone beam.
- When starting the procedure, you will be cleaned to kill bacteria right away the surgical area and the outer area of the lips and cheeks. Then the gums are anesthetized and incision.
- Carry out bone placement or pump bone into the area to be grafted. Use shielding material that fully covers and fixes the bone graft area.
- Sew gums tight. Then disinfect and end the surgery.
- Advise the steps of care after surgery to help patients recover quickly.

- Do not smoke or drink a lot of alcohol 1 month before surgery and after surgery.
- Don’t eat before the anesthetic wears off. Because you may mistakenly bite your lips and cheeks, or the food will cut into numb tissue without your knowledge.
- After the body feels normal, eat soft, liquid, and warm foods or let it cool. Do not use very hot or cold foods or drinks that could stimulate bleeding in the gums.
