At Fort Rouge Dental, our Winnipeg dentists offer bone grafting to help repair the jaw for dental restorations such as bridges or dental implants.
What is a bone graft?
Bone grafting is the process of increasing the height or width of the jawbone to fill in voids or defects. Bone grafting is typically recommended to help stabilize the jaw for additional dental treatments such as an implant placement or to prevent bone recession following an extraction, gum disease, or another invasive process.
What would I require a bone graft?
Bone grafting is often closely associated with dental restorations such as dental bridges or implants. In the majority of cases, the success of a restoration procedure is directly affected by the height, depth, and width of the jawbone.
When the jawbone is damaged or has receded, an implant cannot be supported, and bone grafting is usually recommended.
