Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone. The most common reason to replace missing bone with grafting is to replace missing teeth. Dental implants require bone for support and to have the implant integrate properly in the mouth. Bone grafting may be required where there is insufficient bone width, height, thickness or  height. The height is the most important aspect because that ensures the dental implant properly anchors to support the stresses of chewing food.

If bone grafting is recommended, Dr. Calat will determine the optimal technique to help you obtain the best result.

Reasons you may need bone grafting prior to dental implants could be:

  • Inadequate bone as a result of previous teeth removal
  • Gum disease
  • Injury

Bone grafting may also be accomplished with different procedures like sinus augmentation. You should consult with a qualified Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon about your specific needs to determine which options will offer you the most success.

Most patients can successfully obtain dental implants that last many years.  Bone grafting can enhance your new tooth’s support system, but smoking will increase the risk of failure, as will grinding your teeth.

Dr. Calat, will carefully review your health history, the condition of your mouth and proper x-rays; in order to help you best obtain your dental goals and optimal oral health.
