Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a common periodontal procedure and has different purposes.  2 of the main purposes are:

  • to build up the jawbone to accommodate a dental implant to help restore function and esthetics.
  • in certain cases, to replace missing bone around a tooth that has been lost from periodontal disease


Different sources of bone graft include:

  • the patient's own bone,  cadaver bone (the most common),  and bovine (cow)

Cadaver and cow bone come from tissue banks and are a very safe source for bone donation and provide predictable results
