Bone Graft

A dental implant needs a sound foundation of bone. Bone grafts are done to create good quality bone for dental implant. Advancements in the field of Dental Implantology have led to improvements in biomaterials such as particulate freeze-dried human bone which can be readily obtained from advanced harmaceutical companies. These bones are grafted into the jaws and, in a matter of a few months, are ready to receive implants.

Common sites for bone grafts are the sockets of recently extracted teeth, periodontal pockets around teeth with diminished bone support and even the sinus areas.View videos on types of bone grafts: Block Grafts, and Sinus Lift Grafts.

An exciting new biotechnology in bone grafting is known as Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF).  To learn more, click here.
