Dental Fillings

What Is Dental Fillings?

Bone dental fillings, also known as bone grafting for dental implants, is a procedure that involves adding bone to the jaw to create a stable foundation for dental implants. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone can begin to shrink, making it difficult to support a dental implant. Bone dental fillings help to rebuild the jawbone, allowing for the placement of dental implants.

During the procedure, the dentist or oral surgeon will make a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. They will then insert small pieces of bone, either from the patient's own body or a donor source, into the jawbone. The bone will eventually fuse with the existing jawbone, creating a stable foundation for the dental implant.
