What Is Bone Grafting?
If you have missing teeth you wish to replace, or are considering dental implants, a key factor that determines the success of the procedure and your future oral health is the amount of bone you have in your jaw. Proper jawbone volume is necessary for a variety of reasons, both for dental procedures and your oral health. If you have lost bone volume as a result of gum disease, oral trauma or bone deterioration, you may require bone grafting treatment. Bone grafting is an advanced dental procedure that includes the placement of a small amount of bone material where the bone is thinnest. This bone grafting material will fuse with your existing jawbone and form a sturdy, healthy level of bone to promote proper oral health and allow for future implant placement.
