Dental bone grafting is a dental procedure that requires skill and precision. If the bone in the jaw has deteriorated then it may be necessary to repair and re-grow this. Pearl Dental Clinic have experienced and skilled staff that can achieve great results for patients.
Bone grafting is the process of re-building the bone in the jaw of the mouth. This requires augmentation of bone into the affected area. The types of bone that are most commonly used are the patient’s own bone from another part of the body, bovine-derived bone, or donated human bone. Whilst the process is relatively successful it can still fail in around 25% of patients. If this happens the treatment may be done again. Alternatively, other treatments may be tried instead.
When having dental implants fitted it is essential that the bone in the jaw is strong enough to support them. If teeth have been missing for a prolonged period of time, or there have been issues with the teeth or jaw, then dental bone grafting may be needed. If dental implants are fitted into insufficient bone then they could fail.
