Typical Steps for Bone Grafting

 
steps

This example is assuming that a patient does not have enough bone in the front of the upper jaw.
Initially the patient is Sedated for maximum comfort. The gum flap is detached from the jaw bone (indicated by the yellow lines).

steps

Once the gum flap is detached from the jaw bone, small holes are made into the jaw bone. (These holes help the additional bone to integrate with the jaw bone, creating robust bone).

 
steps

Bone is taken from the back of the patients jaw or chin area (known as Block Grafts) and secured over the jaw bone with small titanium screws. Irradiated Cancellous Bone is also added (Sterile Manufactured Bone) to aid the integration process between the Block Graft and the Jaw Bone.

steps

The bone is left to heal for a period between 2-3 months. After this period the bone will have fully integrated and robust enough to accommodate Dental Implants.
