BONE GRAFTING

By: Laguna Surgical & Cosmetic Specialists  10/26/2015
Keywords: Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting is a surgical procedure in which new bone is grown to replace the missing bone needed to support implants. After tooth loss occurs, over time the jawbone around the missing tooth atrophies or is reabsorbed. The bone is left in a condition unsuitable for the insertion of dental implants. This procedure gives the opportunity to use implants of the proper length and width, and to restore esthetics and functionality.
