Some factors that affect jaw bone volume are peridontal disease, tooth extractions as well as injuries and infections. Bone grafting is an alternative to having missing teeth or diseased teeth or even tooth deformities because it increases the width or height of the jawbone by filling in bone voids and defects. Bone grafting may be the best option for restoring the jaw bone because of dental implants, sinus lift, ridge autgmentation or Nerve repositioning.
Dental mplants are usually not well supported when the jawbone has receded or sustained significant damage, so bone grafting is recommended in this case. This procedure is an excellent way to replace lost bone tissue and encourage natural bone growth. Bone typically taken from your own body is added to the affected site and will fuse with the existing bone, causing firm adhesion and cell growth.
