Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a crucial procedure in dental and oral surgery, often necessary to repair and rebuild bones through the transplantation of bone tissue. Dr. Brandon Kang is proud to offer advanced bone grafting solutions to our patients, ensuring the foundation for future dental restorations, such as implants, is strong and healthy.

Why is Bone Grafting Needed?

Bone loss in the jaw can occur due to several reasons, necessitating a bone graft:

  • Tooth Extractions: Following tooth removal, the jawbone may begin to atrophy due to lack of stimulation.
  • Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease can lead to the destruction of the jawbone.
  • Dental Implants: Adequate bone mass is essential for the successful placement of dental implants.

Types of Bone Grafts

Depending on the patient’s needs, various sources of bone grafts can be used:

  • Autograft: Bone taken from the patient’s own body.
  • Allograft: Bone sourced from a human donor.
  • Xenograft: Bone derived from animal sources, typically bovine.
  • Synthetic: Artificial bone-like materials. 

The Bone Grafting Procedure

  • Assessment and Planning: We conduct a thorough evaluation, including imaging studies to determine the extent of bone loss.
  • Surgical Procedure: The bone graft material is placed in the area where bone is missing or insufficient.
  • Healing Process: The graft material helps to stimulate new bone growth, a process that can take several months.
