Bone grafting is a surgical procedure in which the dentist uses grafting material from other sources to supplement your bone structure and help with bone regeneration. The bone grafting material may be derived from another part of your body, from another individual, from synthetic materials, or animals like cows.
Dental bone grafting is usually done to facilitate the regeneration of your jawbones, especially after you’ve suffered tooth loss. Bone grafting is most commonly done for dental implants if you don’t have enough bone structure to support the implants.
