bone grafting

bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to fix problems
with bones or joints.

Bone grafting, or transplanting of bone tissue, is beneficial in fixing bones that are damaged from trauma, or problem joints.

When a tooth is removed, the bone that supported this tooth is also lost in time. The only chance to save this supporting bone for later use, is to place a bone graft at the time of extraction. The bone is placed in the clean socket and covered by a membrane or gum graft. After healing, you will typically have more suitable bone to place an implant and restore your tooth.

Inadequate bone width for successful implant placement.

Bone graft along with a membrane to contain the graft at graft size.

Adequate bone with regenerated for placement of a dental implant.
