After a tooth is removed, most people start to lose their bone mass, resulting in a change in their facial structure. This can especially impact the success of a dental implant procedure. To regenerate bone in preparation for a dental implant or to help recover from an implant, bone grafting is often used.
Bone grafting for tooth implants involves the grafting of bone material onto the jawbone. Once grafted, the new bone takes a few months to integrate, resulting in bone that is strong enough to secure an implant reliably. This graft can either be applied in preparation for or concurrently with an implant surgery, depending on the patient’s needs. In either case, however, bone grafts for dental implant procedures help secure dental implants for long-term success.
Bone Grafting Materials
Osstem Implant offers some of the best bone graft materials for dental implants, each tested for efficacy and compatibility with our products:
This titanium mesh membrane is designed to support the bone graft process, providing structure as the bone graft develops and integrates with the jaw.
A-Oss, short for xenograft bone graft, is a bovine bone-based dental graft material. Because of its organic origins, it matches human bone porosity well and results in excellent bone growth.
Q-Oss+, short for alloplastic bone graft, is a synthetic bone-based dental graft material.
