Dental implants require bone for long term stability much like the natural teeth. However, where teeth have been lost, bone levels can become deficient. This can be due to severe gum disease or even the process of ageing.

This can potentially compromise the stability of the dental implant. In this situation, implant bone grafting may be required. This is where additional granules or blocks of bone are added to the deficient area to help the implant integrate better into the jaw bone.

An additional healing graft material is often applied over the top to cover and secure the bone graft in the area to ensure adequate healing.

Benefits of Implant Bone Grafting

Research has show the benefits of bone grafting in implant treatment and the success rates are very high. Very occasionally your own bone can also be used, but this has been superseded by bone substitute materials. These are less invasive and the success rates for bone substitute materials are very high.

Your dentist will discuss which type of bone graft is required before any treatment commences.
