Benefits of Bone Grafting
Bone Grafting Strengthens The Jaw
Bone grafting is a process that uses natural bone material to strengthen the preexisting bone material of your jaw. In a bone grafting procedure, bone material is added to the jaw structure. Once the jaw accepts this material, it performs just the same as the rest of your jaw bone. In this way, bone grafting strengthens the jaw and it leaves enough room for a dental implant.
There Are Numerous Bone Grafting Materials
There are numerous natural and artificial sources of bone grafting material. Your oral surgeon may opt to utilize natural materials, including small segments of your own bone, or portions of animal bone. Numerous artificial bone graft materials also exist. If you opt to utilize your own bone material, your jaw bone can further grow for even greater strength.
Helps Prepare For Teeth Replacement
Dental implants are often used to replace missing teeth. Implants use the jaw bone, so if the bone isn’t strong enough, or there isn’t enough bone at all, the implant won’t be possible. With bone grafting, this will ensure that the jaw bone is strong enough for the dental implant.
How Bone Grafting Prepares Your Jaw
If you have a thin or weak jawbone, it may be impossible to set a dental implant into the structure. You need a wide enough surface to accept the root of a dental implant. Bone grafting gives us this opportunity. Through bone grafting, we can expand the size and strength of your jawbone, affording the opportunity to set a dental implant.
