What is a Bone Graft?
A bone graft is done to help rebuild the jaw and provide support to surrounding tissues. Before, these grafts were often taken from another part of the patient’s body, like the ribs. Now, the procedure is much less complicated and can be done at the dentist’s office. Bovine, or cow, bone is used very successfully, and the body recognizes it as natural bone, which causes the regeneration of new bone in the jaw area. Dental bone grafts have several different applications, and our LuxDen team is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this or any other procedure.
Bone Grafts After Tooth Extraction
After tooth extraction, the patient has a space in their mouth where the tooth used to be. This area is surrounded by alveolar bone, which supported the now removed tooth. If the tooth is not somehow replaced or that hole is not filled in, the alveolar bone is reabsorbed into the body, and the area around the tooth atrophies. A type of bone graft known as a socket graft, or ridge preservation graft, can prevent this from happening. For this type of graft, bovine bone is usually used, and within a few months, the graft causes new bone to grow so that implant dentist Brooklyn specialist Dr. Umanoff can place tooth implant.
