Bone Grafting

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons frequently utilize bone grafting techniques in conjunction with tooth extractions, dental implant placement, facial trauma treatment, and reconstructive surgery of the mouth, face, and jaws. Bone grafting aims to provide a good quantity and quality of bone at the desired site for proper form and function. Bone grafting is sometimes necessary to facilitate dental implant placement, especially when teeth have been missing from these sites for an extended period of time. They are also used in reconstructive cases to improve a patient’s capacity for more effective chewing and improve speech and facial appearance.
