Bone grafting is the removal of a piece of bone from a larger bone in your body then placing it in your jaw. This procedure is done when you have a receding or extensive damage to your jawbone. Normally, major damage to the jawbone impedes dental implants because it cannot support the appliance. Because of this, our bridge dentist can carry out a bone graft to restore the unstable foundation which can support your artificial tooth or teeth. If you’re near San Francisco, CA, then consider calling to schedule an appointment.
Materials for bone grafting can come from two places. The first place is from your body. Or, we can use a special biomaterial to act as a bone graft. In either case, we use special instruments to extract and fix the new bone in the target site.
More often than not, bone grafting is closely linked with dental implants and bridge work done by a qualified dentist. The successes of the restoration depend on the height, depth, and width of the jawbone at the implant site. That’s why bone defects and frailty have to be dealt with before moving on to the next step. Through bone grafting, your dentist creates a stable bone mass that can fully support the dental appliance. Generally, bone grafting is a highly successful procedure. This makes it the go-to option for combating a wide variety of dental problems.
