When Is A Jawbone Graft Necessary?

A bone graft involves bone or synthetic material to replace or regenerate bone in the jaw. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia. There are a few reasons why your dentist may suggest having a dental bone graft.

Key takeaways:

  • Jawbone grafts are often used to regenerate bone so that dental implants can be inserted successfully when replacing missing teeth.
  • Severe gum disease can harm the jawbone as well as gums and can cause bone loss.
  • Osteoporosis or a jaw injury may cause bone deterioration.

Your dentist can discuss bone grafts and answer any queries. If you are considering dental implants, your dentist may discuss the need for a bone graft too.

“…less jawbone can mean you aren’t a candidate for dental implants….you can dramatically increase the success of your dental implants for a beautiful and natural-looking smile.”
