Missing teeth can cause the jaw bone to get reabsorbed, resulting in the loss of bone. Bone grafting is often performed to enable patients with inadequate bone to receive dental implants. This specialized oral surgery involves replacing bone levels in your jaw. After sutures are in place, the area is allowed to heal for a few months to let the bone grafting material fuse with your jawbone. There are three types of bone grafts. Autogenous grafts (autografts) are created from a bone taken from somewhere else in your body, therefore they enhance bone growth while eliminating the risk of rejection. Allogenic grafts (allografts) use processed and freeze-dried bone harvested from a cadaver that functions as a scaffold, over which bone from the surrounding bony walls grows and fills in the void. Xenogenic grafts function the same way as the allograft but are usually taken from a cow bone that is highly processed to prevent possible rejection and contamination.
