How do bone grafts work?

The majority of dental bone grafts are performed to restore the bone to the previous form or shape after the loss of teeth but also after a case of gum disease or injury. Bone grafting is frequently used to uphold the bone structure after the extraction of teeth.

Restoring or maintaining the facial bone structures can be important for a number of reasons. Quite a few dental procedures require that the bone is as close to the former original dimension and position as it can be to achieve the best outcome. In addition the jaw and other bones part of our facial area play an important supporting role as they have the responsibility has uphold the skin and muscles which are responsible for looks and so called cosmetic appearance. If we would not have the support of the bone we all would suffer from a look of premature aging.
