Bone Grafting for a Healthier Smile
For a dental implants procedure to be successful, there must be enough bone in the jawbone to support the implants. For patients who do not have enough existing bone in the jaw, a bone grafting procedure may be recommended. A bone graft is a form of bone augmentation that builds the bone and the surrounding structures so that dental implants can be placed. It is typically utilized to fill any defects of bone loss that can occur from gum or periodontal disease, or from missing teeth.
Bone grafts can come from a patient’s own bone, typically the chin, ramus, or even from the bones of the hip or shin. The bones from human cadavers, cows, or synthetic materials may also be used depending on patient preference. Bone can also be grown by utilizing recombinant bone morphogenic protein (BMP) to induce your stem cells to become bone-forming cells. The natural bone or bone-like material is added to the jaw during the bone grafting procedure. After bone grafting, a patient must wait few months for the grafted materials to fuse with the jawbone. If the bone graft is successful, then dental implants can be placed in the jawbone and will have a secure base.
