BONE GRAFTING / BONE AUGMENTATION

The difference mainly lies in the extent of augmentation to correct the bone defect as result of bone loss. When implants are in consideration for replacing missing teeth, the quality and the quantity of existing jawbone structure are crucial for successful implantation and implant integration. Often as a result of periodontal disease, trauma or long term tooth loss, there is not enough bone structure remaining to safely and optimally support the proposed dental implant(s). Today, there are many surgical techniques available to augment jawbones. For example, one can augment the amount of bone in the posterior upper jaw by grafting bone to the ridge or the maxillary sinus.
