This is somewhat a technical question and might be difficult to answer. Basically, I had my teeth extracted three weeks ago and am wearing a temporary denture in preparation for implants. I had some bone loss, so they did some grafts in my mandible. (I'm not 100% sure what kind, but I believe, after doing a little reading and from things they said, that it was probably an allograft powder.)
My question is this: how can I best maximize my own bone growth? Again, I did a little reading, and so now I am supplementing with Omega-3s via flaxseed, hemp, and chia in my morning smoothies; 600mg daily of highly bioavailable calcium, 80mcg of vitamin K (plus I have a little spinach almost every day), vitamin C, and vitamin D3. I also am trying to up the protein in my diet, which is hard because honestly, with the denture, I don't feel like eating a lot. I don't smoke. I've mostly given up pop and have maybe one weekly.
Is there anything else I should be doing/taking/eating to help with bone regeneration? Does chewing help (sort of like resistance training for the jaw)?
Huge thanks in advance to anyone who has the info!
I'm determined to do everything I can to make this successful.
