What Is Bone Grafting?
When an area of a patient’s jaw lacks enough bone to support teeth or implants, bone grafting can solve the problem.
The goal of bone grafting is to provide good quantity and quality of bone at the desired site for proper form and function. Bone grafting to facilitate dental implant therapy enables patients to improve their capacity for more effective chewing and also can improve appearance when visible missing teeth are replaced. Improved function also includes improved speech when missing teeth affects a patient’s ability to speak normally.
