Patients requiring dental implants often require augmentation of the bone in the area the implant is going to be placed.
The grafts are used to grow the bone back to where it was prior to the tooth being extracted.
The types of grafts available are as follows:
-Block bone grafts used for very large defects.
-Guided regenerative bone grafts for smaller defects.
-Sinus lift bone grafts to grow bone in the posterior maxilla (upper jaw).
