Bone grafting is the replacement of jaw bone loss due to injury or gum
disease. Often times, if a tooth is missing, the associated bone will be
reabsorbed into the body. In these cases, the corrupted quality and lack of
available bone structure makes the addition of dental implants difficult.
Current technology enables us to restore lost bone when necessary. It
performs the dual service of allowing us to restore functionality while,
improving the overall appearance of your teeth so you can smile with
Bone cells are taken from a tissue bank or from your own body from
areas such as the jaw, hip or below your knee. In some cases a special
layer is used to assist the development of the bone cells. This process
is called guided bone regeneration.
