Bone Repair & Grafting

Bone repareBone grafting is commonly performed along with or prior to implant placement. When an implant is placed into an extraction socket (immediate implant) there is a discrepancy between the shape and diameter of the implant and the socket wall. A bone graft material is placed between the implant and the socket to allow for proper healing. When teeth have been missing for some time, the bone that supported the teeth resorbs, (goes away), especially in width. A bone graft is done prior to implant placement to rebuild the bone to the proper width to receive the implant. There are a variety of techniques that are used, and your particular case will be discussed with you. Techniques such as the Allograft Ring, guided bone regeneration, indirect and direct sinus grafting are carried out to enable implant placement.
