What is a Bone Graft?

What is a Bone Graft?A bone graft is a surgical procedure used to repair bones through the transplantation of other healthy bone tissues. Bone grafting is required when a patient does not have a sufficient amount of healthy bone in their mouth to support a dental implant or another type of oral surgery. This deficiency may be caused by a developmental defect, a face injury, gum disease, or an empty space after other teeth were removed. The procedure itself is considered minimally invasive and most patients complete the surgery in an outpatient capacity.

The Primary Benefits

The Center For Oral Surgery of Las Vegas recommends a bone graft when it is beneficial for the patient’s health and wellbeing. The primary benefits of our Las Vegas bone grafts include the following:

  • Restoration: Bone grafts allow oral surgeons to restore bone mass and other oral structures that will help the patient avoid further dental and orthodontic procedures.
  • Cosmetic: Bone grafting is used to support a number of facial bones and facial structures which can improve a patient’s overall appearance. This can in turn boost a patient’s self-esteem and confidence.
  • Support: A bone graft helps support the remaining structures in your mouth and jaw. If the loss of a tooth has occurred, a bone graft can help support your remaining teeth and jaw so that further damage does not occur.
  • Improve the Use of Dental Appliances: Bone grafts can also help support other dental appliances like crowns, implants, dentures, and bridges. This will improve the function of each dental appliance in the long term.
