Bone Grafts

Teeth that are missing for some time or that have been lost following an injury often leave an area of your jaw with a compromised bone volume. Prior to replacing these teeth with dental implants, a bone graft may be necessary as a separate procedure, much like laying the foundation before building a house.

Many sources of bone graft material exist and these may be obtained from your own body (autograft), from another human being (allograft), from an animal (xenograft), or from a synthetic material (alloplast).

The source of bone graft depends on your specific situation. An autograft can be harvested from various parts of your body and the anatomic site selected depends on the type and volume of bone required for your situation. Anatomic sites commonly used are the upper or lower jaws accessed through incision inside the mouth, the crest of the pelvic bone and the tibia.

PRF Technique for Pre-Implant Reconstruction:
We are also excited to offer various bone and gum grafting and augmentation procedures using platelet rich fibrin (PRF) biotechnology, by harvesting a small amount of the patient's own blood. This allows for a rapid initial healing phase and the avoidance of a second surgical site for bone harvesting. This option will be discussed with you should you meet the proper criteria.
