Dental Bone Grafting in London

In the event that a patient doesn’t have the adequate amount of bone structure for dental implants after they have lost a tooth, a dental surgeon may have to harvest the patient’s native bone to increase the bone volume in these areas.

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

In these and many other situations in which a patient doesn’t have enough bone structure to have implants set in place, our implantologist will use a bone grafting procedure to give you the right amount of bone to successfully sustain a dental implant.

There could be several reasons why a patient would not have the sufficient amount of bone structure to handle an implant and thus would require a bone graft in order to successfully receive dental implants. Such reasons could include:

  • When a socket is left with thin bone walls as a result of tooth extraction
  • An instance where a patient has suffered a lot of bone damage & loss from an infection, or cysts.
  • Gum disease (Periodontal disease)
  • Dental trauma can also cause a patient to have significant bone loss.
