Bone Graft

A variety of procedures can be used to harvest extra bone from other parts of the body to build up extra volume and space in the area of surgery to achieve the desired result.

Bone is commonly taken from inside the mouth, hip, knee, ribs, cranium and cheek bones or artificial bone like material can be placed to the area. The extra bone or bone like material will then fuse with existing bone over several months.

This is commonly planned in conjunction with other surgical procedures when additional bone is required. Often extra bone is required for placement of dental implant as existing bone may not be sufficient to support them.

Other uses can also include restoring continuity of the existing jaws due to trauma, pathologyor orthognathnic surgery
