Bone grafting is the process of restoring the bone in the jaw that has been lost due periodontal disease.  When placing a dental implant it is very important to have a solid foundation. The bone supports the implant. Solid bone needs to support the implant for it to be stable and have a good long term prognosis. If you don’t have enough bone for a dental implant, bone grafting and tissue engineering, utilizing stem cell technology, can aid in creating a good bone mass that can support your implant.
