What is Bone Grafting?

A bone graft is a procedure done to help you add bone mass to your jawbone for dental treatment. This is to reverse bone loss.

There are four materials that can be used for a bone graft. You can use materials from your own body. It would be a piece of bone from a different part of your body. You may also be able to get it from a human tissue bank. Another option is to use animal bone for your bone graft. Lastly, there is an option to use a synthetic bone material.

Whichever material is used for your procedure will be placed in the area where bone loss has occurred. It is essentially giving your body a chance to retain that new material and strengthen the area. Ideally, your body will create new tissue to hold the graft in. That would be considered a successful procedure.

Once your procedure is found to have worked, you are going to be able to proceed with other dental procedures such as dental implants.
