Questions & Answers

Bone Grafting

What is a bone graft?

This is an oral surgery that our dentists will recommend to individuals with a jaw that is not dense or thick enough. During this procedure, a piece of bone from another area of your body or jaw will be transplanted to your jawbone. It is most common to use bone from your own body, but it is possible to use artificial bone material if necessary. Your jawbone will mesh with the grafted bone tissue and provide you with strength and stability.

Who needs a bone graft?

If an individual has insufficient bone density that will not support a dental implant or other restorations, a bone graft may become necessary. Bone grafts are most commonly used for dental implants and certain periodontal procedures when bone has deteriorated because of gum disease.
