BONE GRAFTING

<< BACK

Has another dentist told you that you're not a good candidate for dental implants? For most dentists, patients who have deteriorated bone tissue as a result of extractions, trauma, or gum disease, dental implants are just too complex and beyond their skills. Luckily, we are not most dentists!

We understand that every patient's needs are different, and we are committed to finding ways for every patient to get the care they deserve. If the quality of your bone tissue is not currently sufficient for dental implants, we can build it up using a process called bone grafting.

What Is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting uses a similar technique as tissue grafting. During this type of procedure, tissue is removed from somewhere else on the body (or obtained from a tissue bank) and then surgically placed over the area that needs to be repaired and treated so that it incorporates into the existing tissue. This type of procedure is often used to help repair the skin of patients who have been badly burned.

Bone grafting is essentially the same idea. We can use bone from a tissue bank or remove bone from another area on the body. Once the donor bone has been placed, it is covered with a special barrier of material. This encourages your existing tissue to accept the donor bone and to incorporate it so that it becomes a permanent part of the bone structure. At NELA Dental, our dentists will evaluate your unique situation and recommend options.

Other Uses for Bone Grafts

In addition to building up your bone tissue for placing dental implants, bone grafts may be used to treat other dental conditions as well. Some of the other reasons we may recommend a bone graft include:
