Dental bone graft surgery is recommended for patients with bone loss in one or more areas. The procedure is usually performed in cases where the patient’s bone structure from underneath the gum tissue is not able to support an implant. The bone can be shorter or thinner due to various reasons, including:
● Gum disease or periodontal disease
● Dental cavities and infection
● Genetic reasons
● Previous dental procedures
● Tooth loss
