Bone grafting is a procedure that may be necessary if the jawbone has experienced bone loss hindering it from receiving an implant or other type of restorative procedure.
The grafting builds the jawbone back up, replacing the lost bone, and brings it to its original strength once again. In cases of periodontal procedures and dental implants, bone grafting is actually a relatively common part of the process, and the bone used to graft comes from the patient’s own sample, which allows for greater success. The bone sample is taken from another portion of the mouth after a drilling, and the very same fragments that are suctioned from the mouth are those that will then be used to create your graft.
