Peak Dental specializes in implants and bone grafting for patients. A 29063 bone graft is done when the jawbone becomes atrophied or reabsorbed into the gum after a missing tooth. Implants commonly replace missing teeth, but those patients seeking a dental implant are not candidates for placement if they are missing bone or gum.
Inadequate bone structure usually happens due to missing teeth or gum disease. Injury can also be a reason for the deterioration of bone. Bone is usually obtained from a tissue bank or from the patient’s own bone, hip or tibia. In a 29063 bone graft procedure, the patient can grow bone again where needed and have their dental implants placed to restore functionality and esthetic appearance to the jawline. A healing period of several months is given so that the bone becomes part of the patient’s jaw and the implants are able to be inserted. If the case is severe, and the ridge has been reabsorbed, a bone grafting procedure may be recommended in order to increase the ridge height.
Traumatic injury or tumor may require a 29063 bone graft. Congenital defects may also play a role in the need for a graft. Bone grafting surgery and a sinus lift require a hospital stay and is performed at a hospital in an operating room.
