Bone grafting may be a necessary part of the dental implant process if your jaw bone is inadequate to place an implant.
There are several types of bone graft and the essence to success if always to advocate the simplest and predictable technique.
Simple defect can be patched and repaired with synthetic bone particles.
Moderate bone deficiency can be correct with simple bone expansion techniques. Being a great advocator of split ridge technique, which require fine and highly skilled dexterity, this procedure helps regenerate a predictable and sustainable bone volume.
Severe deficiency require harvesting from a donor site, better known as onlay graft or block graft. The process of bone grafting involves removing a piece of bone from another part of the patient’s jaw or body and transplanting it into the jawbone. After this process, it may take several months for the transplanted bone to develop new bone in order to support dental implants.
The actual procedure is best assessed by your dental specialist.
