Augment Your Jawbone with Bone Grafting
In situations where dental implants or other fixtures designed to improve the health and appearance of your teeth and mouth, are required, bone grafting, or guided bone regeneration, is necessary to restore the strength of the jawline and prepare the face for any kind of dental or medical procedures. Successfully done, this bone graft will support dental implants and heal a jaw damaged by physical trauma or atrophy. Bone grafting is the most effective way to preserve or renew the stability and long term durability of the jaw and form a foundation for dental implant placement.
How Bone Grafting Works
The source of a bone graft can be sourced from a bone bank, where cortical bone is harvested from donors and
preserved to use in case of trauma or other dental surgery (like a blood bank), the patient themselves, otherwise known as an autograft and more recently and popular are the synthetic bone regenerators such as Infuse® or Acell®.
While the thought of a bone graft can intimidate potential patients, modern dental technology has helped make this process easier and more stable than ever. Quick and completely painless, this procedure is more preparatory than anything else. Think of the graft as a foundation for your dental implants.

A Sturdy and Safe Smile
Why is bone grafting necessary? Often, bone that is unused or misused can shrink, known as atrophy or resorption. Missing teeth or other dental complications can lead to bone shrinkage, and the graft is designed to not only replace receding bone, but encourage the regeneration of new, natural bone. Because dental implants are set into the jaw itself, we must make sure the foundation is strong enough to accommodate your procedure. Bone grafting does exactly that.
