Bone Grafting In Scarborough


What is a bone grafting?

Bone grafting is the process of augmenting or replacing bone tissue in the jaw to provide a dependable foundation for dental implants or other dental procedures. When a tooth is lost or extracted, the near bone may begin to deteriorate over time due to lack of stimulation.

In such cases, a bone graft procedure can be performed to restore the lost bone volume and density.

During a bone graft procedure, bone graft material, which can be sourced from the patient’s own body, a donor, or synthetic materials, is placed at the site of bone deficiency in the jaw. 

Over time, the body will integrate this graft material, promoting the growth of new bone tissue. Once the bone graft has healed and matured, it provides a strong and stable foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments.
