Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a specialized procedure that addresses bone loss in the jaw. This intervention is crucial for patients seeking dental implants or experiencing bone deterioration due to periodontal disease, trauma or other factors. Bone grafting plays a pivotal role in restoring structural integrity and supporting successful dental treatments.


Purpose and Importance

Bone grafting aims to rebuild and fortify weakened or depleted jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation for dental implants or other prosthetics. By restoring bone volume and density, this procedure enhances the long-term success of dental interventions.

Types of Bone Grafts

  • Autografts: Bone is harvested from the patient’s body, often from another site within the same jaw or hip.
  • Allografts: Donor bone is used, which is processed and sterilized to reduce the risk of rejection.
  • Xenografts: Bone material is sourced from animal donors and processed for safe incorporation.

Integration and Healing

Grafted bone serves as a scaffold, encouraging the growth of new bone cells to fuse with the existing jawbone. Over time, the graft integrates, restoring strength and stability to the treated area.

Supporting Dental Interventions

Bone grafting sets the stage for successful dental implant placement, ensuring implants have a solid base to anchor. It also facilitates other restorative procedures that require adequate bone support.
