In a bone graft procedure, the doctor will take special bone grafting material and apply the graft it into your jaw bone. Bone grafts are used as a filler and scaffold to facilitate bone formation and promote wound healing. Bone grafts can be used to augment or preserve the bony dimension of a site such as after an extraction procedure or grafted during implant placement. These bone grafts act as a mineral reservoir which induces new bone formation.Then you will have to wait several months for the bone graft to create strong new bone. Once structural stable and strong bone is created, the implant can be placed securely. A successful bone graft allows your jaw bone to be strong enough to support your dental implant.
