Some people don’t have enough healthy natural bone to support dental implants. Bone grafts are used to support ample, strong and sturdy bone around implants. Bone grafts are also used during sinus lift surgery before placing implants, or when there is an extraction of the teeth which caused chronic infection or excessive bone loss. Your implants will be placed after the grafted bone has fused or become a strong, integrated part of the existing bone or at the same time with the implant operation.
Bone grafts, which are produced from humans, animals, or which are made synthetically, are prepared as powder with submicron particles or blocks.
