When bone structure is missing, reconstructive surgery can add to existing bone. A tissue that is transplanted to become part of your body is known as a “graft.” Bone grafting is done in dentistry to build a solid foundation for dental restorations.
Frequently Asked Questions
What materials are involved in Bone Grafting?
Different types of materials are used in bone grafting.
- Your own bone taken from one part of your body, the “donor site,” and moved to another part of your body, the ‘’graft site”
- Bone taken from another person which is then sterilized and freeze-dried before being placed into your body
- Bone taken from an animal, usually a cow, which is then sterilized and freeze-dried before being placed into your body
