Bone Grafting

Repair deficiencies in the jawbone caused by previous infections, trauma or developmental deficiencies.

Ridge Augmentation

Bone grafting (hard tissue augmentation) is an important procedure that can be needed before dental implant surgery. Deficiencies in the jawbone may be caused by previous infections, trauma, or developmental issues. A bone graft will restore the damaged jawbone, and create a more solid base to ensure proper placement of dental implants.

Types of Bone Graft

Autograft: a bone graft using your own bone, usually sourced from the hip bone or back of the jaw.
Allograft: a bone graft using bone sourced from a human donor.
Xenograft: a bone graft using bone from an animal, usually a cow.
Alloplast: a bone graft using synthetic material containing calcium, phosphorous and hydroxylapatite.

Procedure Process

Bone grafting allows the repair of jawbone deficiencies and, in many cases, can be performed at the same time as implant placement and therefore not requiring additional procedures. In some cases, however, a separate procedure is needed based on the severity of the defect. Manufactured material is typically used, thus eliminating the need for harvesting bone from the patient, significantly reducing discomfort and facilitating recovery.
01. Local Anesthesia is Applied
Sometimes oral or IV sedatives can also be used to achieve a higher state of relaxation depending on the needs of an individual patient
02. The Bone Graft is Prepared
A portion of bone coming from another part of the patient’s jaw (autograft) is harvested. Or manufactured bone from a bottle (allograft or xenograft) can be used.
03. Bone is deposited
A small incision is made at the spot. The bone graft is inserted and secured on the jawbone. Some soreness may be experienced after the surgery which can be managed by over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication.
04. Bone Healing
Though you will soon feel completely back to normal, it may take your body up to seven months for bone maturation to take place to receive your dental implant. The waiting time allows the healing process enough time to achieve the desired result: ideal support for replacement teeth that look great and will last a lifetime.

Socket Preservation

A socket preservation bone graft mainly prevents the bone shrinkage that follows tooth extraction. It improves the outcome of dental implants and other restorative treatments, such as bridges, and dentures. It can also have benefits for patients who choose not to immediately replace their lost tooth but may consider replacing it in the future.

02. Tooth is atraumatically extracted
Technique specifically designed to remove a tooth using specialized tools while causing minimal damage or trauma to the surrounding bone and soft tissues.
03. Bone is Deposited in the Socket
Manufactured bone graft material is placed into the socket and secured with sutures
