Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

While dental implants are the best solution for replacing damaged or missing teeth, the procedure is not for everyone. Patients who don't have enough bone to support the implant can't receive this treatment since the implants heavily rely on the patient's bone for support. Fortunately, we have an excellent solution for bone deficiency to help restore your jawbone's density and volume.

Bone Grafting

What is a Bone Graft?

Bone grafting is a unique technique used to treat various bone or joint issues and can assist in filling in gaps where the bone is missing. This procedure can also be used to grow bone around an implanted device so that your dental implants will last longer.

Who is a Candidate for a Bone Graft?

For various medical reasons, candidates for bone grafting may require an initial screening before undergoing the procedure. Common conditions that make bone grafting necessary include:

  • Aging
  • Missing teeth
  • Genetic or developmental abnormalities
  • Periodontal disease
  • Jaw trauma

Different Kinds of Bone Grafts

  • Xenografts - Bone from another species, such as a cow, pig, or other animals, is utilized.
  • Autografts - Bone from your own body, such as your hip or jaw, is used.
  • Alloplasts - This refers to synthesized materials, such as calcium phosphate or calcium sodium phosphosilicate.
  • Allografts - Bone from another person, usually a cadaver or donor, is used in this graft.

What Are the Benefits of a Dental Bone Graft?  

Patients suffering from bone loss may need a bone graft to support their existing teeth or a future dental operation. If you need a tooth extracted and are considering getting a dental implant, your dentist may suggest this treatment first.

Other benefits of bone graft:

  • Fix sinus issues
  • Restores damaged bone
  • It prevents the development of other types of dental problems
  • Improves the functionality and appearance of bridgework
