Bone grafting is the medical procedure that repair and rebuild lost or damaged bone inside your jaw, usually caused by gum infection or missing teeth. It is also used to provide additional support for future dental implants or oral surgery procedures. Using different types of transplanted bone tissue, the dentist will determine if you qualify for a bone grafting depending on how much remaining healthy bone you have left. The bone tissue can be taken from a different part of your body, cadaver or a cow.
A dental bone grafting can help you save more teeth that you can imagine by stabilizing the structure of the jaw. This procedure takes about 45min and can be done at the dental office.
