Bone Graft

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for Placement of dental implant. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.

With bone grafting, we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but also the ability to promote new bone growth in that location! This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Bone Grafting & Augmentation

Bone grafting is a procedure where the dentist place and add bone graft or bone-like material to the jawbone so that it will grow and fuse with the existing jawbone within few months.

After tooth extraction, the bone undergoes absorption which leads to loss of the bone height. Dental implants must have enough bone to support them in order to hold implant for a long period of time.
