Bone

Graft

Bone grafting, also known as bone transfer, enhances jawbone for dental implants, stimulates bone growth, and improves oral health and aesthetics.

What Is Bone grafting/Transfer?

Bone grafting and bone transfer are advanced dental procedures used to augment and restore bone in the jaw. These techniques are crucial for patients who lack sufficient bone mass to support dental implants or require jawbone reconstruction due to tooth loss or injury.

During bone grafting, a biocompatible material is placed in the deficient area, stimulating new bone growth and integration. In contrast, bone transfer involves relocating bone from one part of the patient's body to the jaw.

Both procedures provide a solid foundation for future dental treatments, ensuring long-term oral health and functional outcomes. If you require dental implant placement or jawbone restoration, bone grafting or transfer may be the solution to regain a healthy, functional smile.

Types

Autogenous Bone Grafts: Using the patient's own bone to promote natural bone regeneration and support dental implants or reconstruct bone defects.

Allogenic and Xenogenic Bone Grafts: Utilizing donor or animal-derived bone grafts when autogenous bone is not suitable.

Ramus and Iliac Grafting: Performing specialized autogenous bone transfers from the chin or hipbone to augment the jaw's structure.

Socket Preservation Grafts: Preventing bone loss and maintaining bone volume after tooth extraction to facilitate future dental implant placement.

Sinus Lifts: Elevating the sinus membrane to create space for bone grafting, enabling dental implant placement in the upper jaw.

Benefits of Bone Grafting

Improved Dental Implant Success: Bone grafting and transfer provide a solid foundation for dental implants, ensuring long-lasting and stable tooth replacements.

Enhanced Jawbone Structure: These procedures restore bone volume and strength, maintaining the facial structure and supporting adjacent teeth.

Oral Health Restoration: Bone grafting and transfer help prevent further bone loss and gum recession, promoting overall oral health.

Aesthetically Pleasing Results: These techniques improve the appearance of the smile by providing a natural-looking and harmonious dental structure.
