About Bone Grafting

Bone grafting procedures help place a framework of material where the missing bone once used to be located. This allows cells to enter and start the important rebuilding process. Over a period of time, cells will remodel the graft material into functioning bone for a patient. This procedure is especially important for those that are looking to have dental implants planted in their mouth and don’t’ have the proper jaw bone density to handle the healing process well.

Bone grafting material comes from many places such as places in the patient’s body and transplanted to the desired place. Good graft material contains the patient’s actual cells and has no risk of transmitting disease.
