A strong jawbone is a great foundation for a healthy smile. However, for a variety of reasons, our jawbone can deteriorate over time. This may warrant a bone graft performed by our experienced dentist, Dr. Robert Abbiati, DDS.
What is a Bone Graft?
A bone graft is a procedure that involves taking healthy bone from a graft site and placing it in the jaw where extra support is necessary. During the healing process, the bone will fuse, creating a single structure that can support other forms of restoration.
Why Do I Need a Bone Graft?
A bone graft is most common when it comes to getting dental implants. Sometimes an older patient has a weak jawbone that cannot hold the implant post – which is surgically placed in the jaw. By performing a bone graft, our dentist is able to create the proper environment for restoration.
