Bone grafts are done to restore inadequate bone levels following gum disease, trauma and tooth loss. They are used to maintain bone levels following tooth extraction, especially in a site where an implant is planned to be placed. After tooth loss, surrounding bone begins to deteriorate, reducing bone levels in width, height, and density. It is important to maintain the quality and quantity of bone to increase the success of implant treatment. Maintaining the bone level aids in supporting the facial structure as well, ensuring aesthetic appearance and preventing premature aging.
