Bone Grafting

When a tooth is extracted, a significant amount of bone is resorbed as a result of the extraction. The majority of this resorption happens in the first three months and often results in a sunken/hollowing appearance post treatment.  In the past, surgeons would harvest bone from another part of the body (such as the hip) to do a bone graft for a dental implant procedure. Recent advancements have considerably changed this for the better.

What Is Bone Grafting?

Modern day bone grafting techniques utilise far more patient centric and predictable processes. Cutting edge techniques allow us to harvest bone from nearby sites as well as use artificial bone to reduce healing downtime, improve predictability and surgical outcome. We use modern day techniques that allow us to improve the availability of bone for the placement of dental implants. For the upper and lower jaw, we can use bone grafting techniques to improve the width of available bone. We can also use bone grafting techniques such as a sinus lift to improve the length of available bone. Visit Dentist Hawthorn to learn more about this revolutionary procedure.
