Bone Graft

Tooth loss often leads to more loss of bone over time. For tooth implants to be successful, the jawbone must have enough bone to support them.

Dental bone graft or bone augmentation is a term that describes a variety of dentistry procedures used to “build” bone so that dental implants can be placed as a tooth replacement option. These procedures typically involve grafting (adding) bone or bonelike materials to the jaw. If the bone under your gum is not tall enough, not wide enough or both, you will need dental treatment to add bone to your jaw before implants can be placed.

How it Works

Bone grafts obtained from the patient are the material of choice for
the reconstruction of the lost bone. Most of the time, bone grafting
procedure can be performed by taking a small amount of bone from
another part of the mouth under local anesthesia and then placing it
in the area where it is needed for the implant using oral surgery

A Solution for All Kinds of Patients

Bone loss varies from one patient to another, and from areas of the
mouth to another. Patients who do not have minimal bone conditions can also be rehabilitated by combining bone reconstruction
with grafts and replacing lost teeth through implants.

Recovery Process

In some patients, there is severe loss of bone and soft tissues of the
gum, which compromise the nal outcome of treatment. After
grafting, you have to wait several months for the grafted material to
fuse with the existing bone.
