It’s often the case the patient needs to have some bone replaced before we can fit dental implants or carry on with a variety of different procedures.
Bone graft procedure is a surgery that dentist rebuild the bone of your jaw that has been lost for several reasons. This could be around an existing tooth that has lost its bone due to gum disease or periodontal disease or could be a procedure prior or in adjunct with implant surgery. If you loose a tooth and don’t get implant your jaw starts to shrink and it will lose its bone mass in the area that there used to be bone. In order to place implant we need Bone so we use this technique to build the bone. It is an integral and important part of implant surgery. Once of fascinating techniques that we use during bone graft surgery is use of PRGF technique. It stands for Plasma rich in growth factors. Its an adjunct service that is combined with bone graft procedure in order to improve the results of the surgery. Basically we use your own healing power derived from your own blood to accelerate and improve the healing.
There are 3 types of bone graft materials.

3-From Cow or Pig.
It’s important that we look at all the different options and judge every case on an individual basis. That way we will always be able to find the perfect solution for your unique needs.
Building up the bone around any natural teeth you still have is another priority. If you’ve lost teeth and not corrected the situation, problems can start. For example, your jawbone can start to weaken over time. That’s where our North York bone grafting process comes in handy.
There’s a few things that you should know about the procedure and what you should expect.
People who’ve lost a tooth to a variety of reasons from periodontal disease, infection or injury find dental implants are a safe permanent best solution. One of the big benefits to having a dental implant is the fact that it acts just like a natural tooth and is indistinguishable from your other natural teeth.
However, they need to be anchored firmly in place and when there’s not enough jawbone present, this bone grafting procedure is the best course. There are a few different ways that this operation is carried out. Usually, we will take a piece of the bone from another part of your jaw and transplant it over. There are several other options including cadaver and animal sources.
Safe and Effective
The North York bone grafting processes we use are safe and effective. Because these usually work with dental implants, we wanted to list a few advantages of having this surgery done with bone grafting.
For example, dental implants often improve your speech. Once these are properly placed they actually fuse with the bone. They become a permanent part of your dental makeup and look and act as closely to your original teeth as possible.
Here’s another reason that we often suggest bone grafting is the best course of action. Once you have a dental implant, you’ll be able to eat your favourite foods. We like to tell our patients that dentures are a less permanent option that can slide around and cause you discomfort.
