Bone graft is a surgical procedure to repair bone fractures to replace missing or damaged bone. If a tooth is missing for a long time or in the case of periodontitis, the bone gets thinned and damaged and is reabsorbed.
In such cases, bone grafting is required for implant placement.
We can reconstruct the bone mass during this described operation. (to place an implant the minimal height of the bone must be 8 mm). Basically, the bone graft procedure happens simultaneously with the implant placement process.
