Why Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is often necessary when:

  • The jawbone has insufficient density or volume for dental implant placement.
  • Bone loss has occurred due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or injury.
  • Improving the contours of the jawbone and gums for aesthetic reasons.

Types of Bone Grafts We Offer

  • Autograft: Bone taken from another area of your body.

The Bone Grafting Procedure
