Dental grafts are a common procedure done to transplant a piece of bone or tissue to compensate for a loss of that substance elsewhere in the oral cavity.
Bone grafts are done in order to fill in an area of bone that has receded, in many cases so that an implant can be securely placed. Bone grafts are carried out for specific cases, including severe trauma or congenital defects. If you are in need of an implant, or have known bone loss, set up an appointment with Dr. Kamel today, and have your unique treatment plan prepared.
