Providing a Lifetime of Dentistry that Cares
What is Dental Bone Grafting?
Dentists perform a dental bone graft when a patient’s tooth or teeth have been missing for an extended period of time, or when there is insufficient bone remaining to support a dental implant. When an individual allows for a missing tooth to remain for a long enough period of time, there is greater risk for the jawbone to begin deteriorating. If the graft takes place early enough, it may be possible to replace the bone that has been lost with a dental bone graft, but this is never guaranteed. For this reason, it is critical to schedule a dental appointment as soon as possible if you are missing a tooth or teeth.
If your dentist determines that your best course of action is to have a dental bone graft, they will use bone or synthetic material to encourage growth of bone tissue in the area or areas where the loss has occurred. Many patients prefer the use of synthetic materials, however the use of an actual bone (either human or animal) is also an option. If your preference is to use an actual bone, the donated bone will go through an extensive disinfectant process to prepare it for placement.
