Bone Grafting

Dental x-rays

Bone grafting may be required to address defects in a patient’s jaw. Bone grafting is a form of reconstructive surgery that helps to generate and rebuild bone and increase bone density.

Bone grafting surgery is performed to correct problems that may be the result of:

  • Defects present from birth
  • Trauma
  • Tooth loss and subsequent loss of bone in the related jaw area
  • Bone loss around existing teeth as a result of periodontal diseases
