What Is Bone Grafting and What Material Is Used?
In this video, Austin cosmetic and implant dentist Dr. Brandon Hall explains bone autografts and what material we use during the procedure.
Let’s talk about bone grafts and bone graft. What is it and what is the material? A bone graft is used to rebuild and help preserve your jawbone, which is very, very important for facial structure, for the implants and the restorations themselves. What is it made of? There’s a variety of things that it can be made of. Generally it can be synthetic or it can come from a natural source, which is a human body, a cadaver that’s been processed.
A bone graft is just the mineral content of the bone. It matches human bone exactly, and it’s very safe, used all the time, all over the world. So it’s synthetic or a naturally occurring bone that’s been processed. Mostly, here at Aspire Dental, I use both, depending on the situation. Mostly I’ll use the synthetic bone. But both of them have applications and they’re both very good for rebuilding and replacing bone in the human body.
