Bone Grafting
Increasingly both aesthetic and functional factors must be considered prior to implant placement, especially in the aesthetic zones. Frequently, bone augmentation is required, either prior to or simultaneous with implant placement. The use of bone graft substitutes and barrier membranes has become the standard of care for treatment of bony defects in preparation for implant placement.

Where does the bone come from?
We are primarily using a porous bone mineral named Bio-Oss®. Bio-Oss® is a safe, effective bone graft material from specially processed bovine sources. Under the electron microscope Bio-Oss® looks very similar to human bone. Because of its similarity to human bone, Bio-Oss® is highly successful in helping new bone to form. In many cases using a porous bone mineral eliminated the need for additional surgery to obtain your own bone as grafting material.
