What is a dental bone graft?

A bone graft is a surgical procedure performed to augment the jaw bone when it is insufficient. The success of a dental implant and its ability to support a new restoration depends largely on the amount of bone available at the implant site.

There are many things that affect bone volume, including periodontal (gum) disease, trauma and infection, not to mention that it is not unusual to open a site in the mouth to place an implant and discover that some of the critical supporting or porous bone is missing. However, there is always a solution.

What does dental bone graft surgery consist of?

We have excellent techniques available in modern dentistry to replace missing bone. In most cases, we can increase the height, volume and width of the jaw bone during the same appointment as the implant placement.

That way, we will have a clear idea of when additional bone will be needed before dental implant placement or extraction begins. Replacing missing bone or adding existing bone is sometimes essential to the success of a dental implant and subsequent restoration.

This can be done using synthetic bone grafts or even block bone grafts; this means taking natural bone from other areas of the mouth and placing it where it is needed.

Finally, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a new approach to promote tissue regeneration in dental surgeries. PRP is derived from the centrifugation of the patient’s own blood and contains growth factors that influence wound healing and tissue repair.
