What is Bone Grafting?


Bone grafting is a transformative dental procedure that can repair implant sites by adding bone tissue to the jaw. 

If you have experienced tooth loss and address issues such as missing bone or inadequate bone structure, then this treatment is what you need

Bone grafts will help you restore the stability of your jawbone destroyed by trauma, congenital defects, or gum disease and promote new bone growth.

When is Bone Grafting Needed for a Dental Implant?

Bone grafting becomes essential when there is insufficient or poor-quality bone structure to support a dental implant. 

We advise you not to wait too long because your jawbone can resorb or atrophy and your remaining teeth will start shifting. 

If you need dental bone grafts to repair implant sites or address bone augmentation needs, make sure to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists.

Which Are The Major Types of Bone Grafts?

There are three types of bone grafts. Minor. major, and ridge expansion. Here’s when each of them is necessary:

  • Minor Bone Grafting

Minor grafting is necessary in case you need to replace bone that was damaged due to factors such as tooth extraction or gum disease. The bone is procured from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw or hip area. 

Some of the largest defects are fixed using the patient’s own bone. This is due to its inclusion of cellular elements that facilitate the promotion of new bone growth.

We replace bone in the upper jaw by performing sinus bone grafts, necessary for the placement of dental implants.

  • Major Bone Grafts

Major bone grafts are the solution for bigger deficiencies that resulted from trauma, congenital defects, or significant gum disease. 

This complex surgical procedure addresses profound issues, providing a comprehensive approach to restoring oral health. 

A major bone graft is typically performed to replace the damaged bone before a dental implant. This way there’s enough bone tissue to place a new tooth

  • Ridge Expansion

Ridge expansions are a crucial component of implant treatment plans. This particularly goes for cases where bone structure in the upper jaw is insufficient to support dental implants.

The ridge expansion procedure widens the jawbone, overcoming challenges posed by bone loss. 

Whether due to natural tooth loss or tumor surgery, ridge expansions ensure there’s enough bone tissue to support endosseous implants effectively.
