Bone Grafting

Often because of damage or the lapse of time it may be necessary to perform a bone graft prior to inserting an implant, or at the time of placing an implant.

When a tooth is extracted the bone which supported the tooth begins to shrink.

A bone graft is a technique to place bone where it is needed to support the implant.

Over time your bone grows and replaces the graft and the implant is anchored in your regrown bone.
