Bone Grafting is a surgical procedure used to address missing natural bone in a certain area of the body. When a larger area of the bone is defected a bone block or block bone grafting procedure can be performed.
In dentistry, bone grafting (or bone block) is used to address areas in the mouth with thin, soft or lacking natural jawbone by grafting new bone into the particular area in question. This ensures there will be enough jawbone to successfully perform a dental implant procedure during which a dental implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone.
In most cases, our dental team will use specific bone grafting material such as bovine or porcine in combination with your natural bone to graft new bone onto your natural jawbone.
It can take up to several months for enough new and strong bone to be grown with this procedure. If it is determined that there is not much bone needing to be grafted, it can be done along with the dental implant procedure.
Once bone grafting is complete and there is enough jawbone present, the dental implant procedure can commence.
