Patients who might need bone grafting are those who have experienced bone loss in their jaw, which can compromise the stability and health of existing teeth or the success of tooth replacement such as implants. The need for bone grafting originate in various situations. For instance, dental implants require a solid bone foundation for long-lasting placement. In patients where the jawbone is too thin or weak to support an implant, a bone graft can provide the necessary bone mass to securely anchor the implant.

Bone grafting patients

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that aims to increase bone volume and density in areas of the jaw where bone has been lost or is insufficient. This procedure is often necessary for patients who have lost one or more permanent teeth or have suffered from advanced gum disease, both of which can lead to jawbone deterioration. This procedure may be required to maintain the integrity of the jawbone following tooth extraction, as the absence of a tooth can lead to bone resorption over time.

Patients who have suffered jaw injuries or have congenital defects that affect the jawbone may also require bone grafting. Bone grafting is performed on these individuals for aesthetic concerns. The grafted material used for the treatment can be sourced from the patient's own body, a human donor, animal sources, or synthetic materials. The choice of grafting material depends on the individual patient's needs and the extent of bone loss. The healing process can take several months, during which the graft material is gradually absorbed and replaced by new bone.
