Dental Bone Graft Recovery

    bone graft
  • (Bone Grafting) the process of augmenting a bone deficient site or area with more bone. The bone graft can be autogenous, allogenic, xenogenic or alloplastic in nature (see ). Recently Growth Factors (above) have also entered the scene for potential graft material.
  • (Bone grafting) A procedure that stimulates the healing process of a fracture
  • Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from the patient's own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.
    recovery
  • The action of regaining or securing compensation or money lost or spent by means of a legal process or subsequent profits
  • A return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength
  • The action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost
  • convalescence: gradual healing (through rest) after sickness or injury
  • the act of regaining or saving something lost (or in danger of becoming lost)
  • return to an original state; "the recovery of the forest after the fire was surprisingly rapid"
    dental
  • (of a consonant) Pronounced with the tip of the tongue against the upper front teeth (as th) or the alveolar ridge (as n, d, t)
  • alveolar consonant: a consonant articulated with the tip of the tongue near the gum ridge
  • (dentist) a person qualified to practice dentistry
  • Of or relating to dentistry
  • of or relating to the teeth; "dental floss"
  • Of or relating to the teeth

Bone Grafts And Bone Graft Substitutes (Monograph)
Bone Grafts And Bone Graft Substitutes (Monograph)
Explore the choices and reduce the uncertainties you face to select the most appropriate bone graft solution for each patient case you encounter. Build a framework to evaluate the many considerations -- from biological composition and cost to patient factors and risks -- in choosing bone grafts or graft substitutes. Sharpen your understanding of bone regeneration and bone graft biology with this thorough review of the biological and biomechanical properties of autografts, allografts and xenografts, biologics, and synthetics. Written by notables in the field, this new monograph provides a comprehensive and clinical discussion of bone grafts and bone graft substitutes including the use of bone grafts in oncology, spinal arthrodesis, and joint reconstruction.

X-rays after Surgery
X-rays after Surgery
The xrays were taken immediately after my front bottom teeth, FOUR of them, were removed. Notice slots for teeth in the xray. Those slots are now filled in with bone grafts! And boy was that fun! The moral of the story: Don't ever get braces!

x-ray of my knees
My left knee had ACL surgery in 2004, and they used screws to hold the new ACL in place. The new right ACL (Jan 2012) is a different technique, held in place by a bone-graft.

Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 2: Orthopedic, Dental, and Bone Graft Applications
Authoritative international experts comprehensively review many current state-of-the-art uses of polymers, metals, and ceramics in the human body. A veritable encyclopedia of valuable data and experience, this important new reference work is devoted to dental biomaterials, bony biomaterials for grafting applications, and orthopedic fixtures and cements. The discussion includes treatment of emerging materials and of the regulatory and technical forces that will shape their development. The first volume, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 1 discusses the design and evaluation of biomaterials for vascular applications and biomaterials as carriers for bioactive agents. Extensively illustrated and richly referenced, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 2: Orthopedic, Dental, and Bone Graft Applications integrates for today's bioengineering professionals all the basic science and engineering, as well as practical medical experience, needed to meet the ever-growing demand for new and better biomaterials.
