Bone Graft in Tijuana, Mexico
When going for a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, it may sometimes happen that the jaw is not strong or thick enough to support a new implant. In this case, the dentist will suggest a bone graft. Before, bone grafts were done by taking a section of the bone from another part of the body and then grafting that bone part to the jaw bone in order to strengthen that part of the jaw. Today, however, the process is done by using special bone grafting material which eliminates the need for taking a section of the bone from another part of the body. If a larger graft is needed, then it may be possible that the implantation of the new tooth might have to wait for a month or two before the grafting is complete and a strong enough section of the bone is created. With minor grafts, it is possible to do the dental implant at the same time. This is something that the dental specialist has to decide based on the evidence presented.
