Hard Tissue Grafting

When teeth are missing for extensive periods of time, bone collapses and results in a ridge deformity or concavity.

 

If a toothless site has a significant concavity, a hard tissue bone grafting procedure can increase the bone dimensions to allow for implant placement. These bone grafts typically need to heal for three to five months before implant placement. At times, a 3-D CBCT scan may also be needed following grafting.

 

During implant placement, a bone graft is sometimes used to  provide adequate bony dimensions encircling the dental implant. Stable and adequate bone around your dental implant gives the best chance for long term favorable results.
