Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in order to repair bone fractures.
When one tooth is missing for a long time or in case of periodontitis the bone is getting thinner, is resorbing. In these cases to place an implant it is necessary to make a bone graft.
During this operation we can reconstruct the bone mass (to place an implant the minimal height of the bone must be 8 mm). Basically the bone graft is realized together with the operation of placing an implant.
