Once the tooth exfoliate or is removed, over a period of time the bone supporting the teeth gradually atrophies and gets eventually resorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quantity of bone available for the placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for the placement of dental implants.
With bone grafting we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but we also have the ability to promote new bone growth in that location. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.
Some of the commonly used bone grafts are:
Autograft: In order to achieve the best results, patient’s own bone is preferred as a graft. This is termed as autograft. Depending on the requirement of the bone, our surgeons harvest bone from within the patient’s mouth or other areas.
Allograft: This graft is harvested from the humans other than the recipient himself.
Xenograft: Such grafts are harvested from animal.
Alloplast: These are derived from naturally occurring minerals.
At Teeth care centre, we use world’s renowned and highly researched brands for maximum treatment outcome with minimum reactions and cross infections on recipient body.
