If you are in need of bone grafting treatments, there are multiple dentistry procedures that can benefit from them. Most frequently, bone grafting treatments are used to strengthen your jawbone so that dental implants can be placed. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with sturdy alternative tooth replacements that are drilled directly into your jawbone. With a bone graft, you can rest assured that your jaw will be strong enough to hold the implant in place.
Typically, bone grafting treatments use another section of bone from your body which can be safely removed and inserted into your jawbone. In addition, bone grafting replacements can be artificially produced and inserted to give you the jaw strength you require. Most of the time, a bone graft takes several months to strengthen along with your jaw before further treatments can be administered, including implants.
