Patients who require dental implant treatment may not always have adequate jaw bone density or width needed for implants to be placed. The better the bone density and width the more stable the dental implants will be, ensuring their longevity. Fortunately, a number of techniques have been developed that can strengthen the implant site before the surgery takes place.
Depending on the available jaw bone, a bone graft may be done in conjunction with the bone expansion procedure. Bone graft material can either consist of manufactured crystals that match bone structure, animal bone or autogenous bone, which is harvested from certain sites in the patient's body.
