Bone Grafting

Before getting dental implants, it is important that your jawbone is healthy. At Mission Peak Dental Care, we are committed to getting you the best smile of your life. Bone grafting lays the foundation for long-lasting dental implants!

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a procedure that repairs a broken or receding jawbone. In order for dental implants to anchor successfully, the jawbone must be healthy and sturdy. By replacing your jawbone with essential bone material, it pauses the premature aging process that can occur due to missing teeth.

Types of Bone Grafts

Autogenous

  • Bone is harvested from the patient’s own body (i.e. chin, leg, hip)
  • Contains living bone cells
  • Regenerates on its own over time

Allogenous

  • Bone harvested from a cadaver
  • Contains non-living bone cells
  • Does not regenerate; acts as a framework

Xenogenous

  • Bone harvested from an animal (i.e. cow)
  • Contains non-living bone cells
  • Does not regenerate; acts as a framework
