What is Dental Bone Grafting?
In general, bone grafts are either used in block (such as from the chin or the ascending ramus area of the lower jaw) or particulated, in order to be able to adapt it to better fit a defect. Bones have a natural ability to regenerate completely over time in healthy tissue. Often times the grafted bone will completely replace by the native bone during this regeneration process. Sometimes a bone graft can be used to stimulate natural bone regeneration. In certain cases, bone grafts are needed to provide a strong base for dental implants to anchor into. Age can play a factor in the bone density of patients and therefore younger patients are less likely to need a bone graft.
At Sargon Dental Implants, Los Angeles dental Implant Center, we provide detail bone grafting for our regular dental implant patients. Dr. Lazarof is a highly skilled bone graft specialist dentist with several years of training and experience performing successful bone grafting.
Besides the main use of bone grafting – dental implants – this procedure is used to fuse joints to prevent movement, repair broken bones that have bone loss, and repair broken bone that has not yet healed.
Bone grafts are used in hopes that the defective bone will be healed or will re-grow with little to no graft rejection.

Having a healthy bone density is crucial to most types of dental reconstruction treatment.
