Bone Grafting

Bone grafting occurs when there is not enough bone for a dental implant to be inserted. This happens when your jaw bone is too thin or soft to keep the implant in place in its current state. To determine if you require this procedure, your dentist will conduct a CT scan of your jaw.

Procedure

In a bone graft procedure, the surgeon will use a special bone grafting material and graft it onto the jaw bone. However, it will take several months before the graft is able to create sufficient new and strong bone that the implant can anchor to. It is possible for the procedure to be done the same time as the implant surgery if you only require a minor graft. Of course, the final decision lies with the dentist. Once the bone graft is successful, your jaw bone will be strong enough to support your dental implant, allowing you to complete the rest of the implant surgery in peace.
