When you experience bone loss or destruction due to periodontal disease, ill fitting removable dentures, or oral trauma, you might need a dental bone graft. When the dentist performs bone grafting, he or she replaces or augments the bone that surrounds the teeth. In addition to the loss or destruction of bone, bone grafting is used to assist in implant placement as well as helping improve the comfort and fit of removable prostheses. Bone grafting can also be used to improve the aesthetics when a tooth is missing in a patient’s smile zone.
There are three types of bone grafting: autogenous, allograft, and xenograft. An autogenous graft is performed by transplanting bone from one area of the patient’s body to the grafting area. On the other hand, an allograft is performed using synthetic bone or bone procured from a bone bank. Lastly, the xenograft utilizes a cow or bovine bone.
Of these three options, the best and most successful option is the autogenous bone graft. This type of bone grafting is considered the “gold standard” of grafting since it uses live bone that helps to stimulate bone growth and facilitate healing.
