Dental Bone Grafting

How a bone graft works in dentistry

 

Bone grafting may be needed in areas where bone is lacking or shallow. Bone grafting is done in sockets of missing or recently extracted teeth. It replaces or adds to missing or shallow bone. New bone growth strengthens the grafted area by forming a bridge between the existing bone and the grafted material. Over time, new bone growth will replace much of the grafted material. Bone grafts are most commonly used to restore or regenerate bone as needed prior to the placement of bridges or implants.
