When do we recommend bone grafts?
There are several situations in which a tooth extraction may be the best solution.
The most common reasons include the following:
Implants for missing teeth
For those who require dental implants, bone grafts may be required. Bone grafting is a common part of the procedure to replace missing teeth.
If you have lost a tooth, either via an accident or gum disease, a bone graft may help restore your jawline’s integrity.
Advanced gum disease can negatively affect your gumline and jaw bone. If it progresses far enough without treatment it could lead to tooth loss, bone loss and gum loss.
Bone loss can change the structure of the face. This can happen as a result of ageing, osteoporosis, or an accident.
This technique involves the use of bone donated by a genetically similar human donor. The donated material is sterilized and stored in a donor bank.
As the name implies a xenograft is bone material harvested from a genetically dissimilar donor (animal bone).
