If you have suffered from gum disease, you may experience bone loss. Bone grafting is a way to increase bone mass, making your jaw healthy and strong again to keep your teeth securely in their proper place.
A bone graft procedure may be needed if you lack enough supportive bone supporting your teeth. Bone grafting may also be needed if your bone is not dense enough to support a dental implant. If needed, donor bone can be placed in the bone deficient location. Your jawbone will grow together over time with the grafted bone tissue, which will become strong and provide a stable foundation for your jaw, teeth or implants.
