At Academy Dental Group in Winnipeg, our dentists sometimes perform bone grafting procedures in preparation for dental implant surgery.
Bone grafting is performed to add additional bone tissue to your jaw bone, so that it is dense enough to support a dental implant. The material used in bone grafting will most often be a synthetic bone material, or less often, bone tissue from another part of the body.Request Appointment
For some people, a bone graft may be necessary before a dental implant can be surgically implanted into the jaw. Your oral surgeon may recommend a bone graft before your dental implant procedure if your jaw bone is too thin or soft to support the implant.
After the bone graft procedure, there will be a waiting period of a few months until you can have your dental implant surgery. During this time, the bone graft will heal and grow new, strong bone to support your dental implant.
