Technological development has brought about many changes in modern dentistry. Today, we have various dental treatment available that we couldn't even imagine have in the past. While oral treatment was more of a nightmare in the past, today, it's quite safe and pain-free due to sedatives. Dental bone grafting is a procedure that is usually conducted before dental implants. This procedure provides additional support to the jaw bone in the area where the dental implant is to be put in. However, mishaps often occur during such procedures.
Dental Bone Graft Failure
To conduct a dental bone graft surgery, you need a well-experienced and highly trained oral surgeon. A major factor that contributes to your bone graft failure is your overall health condition. You need to have strong teeth, gums, and tissues that can hold the bone successfully. Moreover, lack of care, complications during the surgery, or oral infections can also cause this procedure to fail. In case the bone doesn't attach in your gums, the oral surgeon won't proceed with the dental implant.
Signs of Dental Bone Graft Failure
There are many indicators that reveal that failure of a bone graft surgery. You may experience draining of secretion from the area of surgery even after a few days of surgery. The area will turn red and you will experience intense pain. Also, once the surgery has been conducted, you can feel the new bone attach and grow in your gums. If you don't experience any such feel, then the surgery wasn't a success. You may also experience certain signs of failure after a few months of surgery due to poor hygiene, infections, pain, or continuous pressure.
