What You Need to Know
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to replace or regenerate bone tissue for the purpose of repairing damaged or missing bone. This cutting-edge procedure is often sought after by individuals who desire jawbone reconstruction and dental implant placement. If you’re considering this type of treatment, Dr. Jason Cellars specialize in bone grafting procedures.
The process of bone grafting involves the transplantation of healthy bone cells that have been harvested from another part of the body or banked from a donor site. The transplanted material may be supplemented with artificial support structures such as collagen membranes or porous hydroxyapatite when needed. After surgery, the patient’s own cells will gradually grow into and around the transplanted material, allowing new tissue to form in place of the existing damaged tissue.
Bone grafting can be used to restore function and strength to a damaged area, while also restoring aesthetic appeal if desired. The procedure may be recommended prior to dental implant placement in order to give the implants a solid foundation for long-term success and stability. It can also be used in cases involving large defects caused by trauma, congenital defects, tumors, infections, or dental disease like periodontal disease.
