Indications For Bone Grafting


Dental Implants – The most common application of bone grafting for dental implants. Implants need a healthy bone in an adequate amount for reintegration. Bone grafting is the best option to restore the edentulous area where a sufficient amount of bone is absent.

Sinus lift graft is the procedure involving elevation of the sinus membrane and grafting bone onto the sinus floor, for secure placement of the implants.

Ridge augmentation – Defects in the dental ridge can occur due to trauma, injury, severe periodontal disease or congenitally. The bone graft can fill the ridge and jawbone uniformity is obtained.

Nerve repositioning –Sometimes mandibular implants requires movement of the inferior alveolar nerve to allow for the placement of implants, a bone grafting procedure might help in this case.
