About Bone Grafting

What is Bone Grafting?

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

With bone grafting we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but we also have the ability to promote new bone growth in that location.

We can use bone grafts to increase the amount of bone or preserve the height and width of bone following an extraction in order to place dental implants. Some examples of grafting we do include socket preservation grafts, sinus lift grafts, and ridge split grafts.

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.
