Bone Grafting is done to repair areas of bone shrinkage that can occur in the jaw where a permanent tooth has been extracted. If the bone shrinkage is severe, bone grafting may be required to repair the bony defect. Frequently, bone grafting is performed around a dental implant to improve stability. Bone grafting material comes in many forms. It is available as the patient’s own harvested bone, sterilized/biologically prepared animal or human bone, ground coral from the sea, or even synthetic bone manufactured in a laboratory, called Hydroxyapatite.
