Bone Grafting

Better, Faster Procedures in Orlando, FL

Bone Grafting is a specialized procedure that fills up the area of the missing bone and starts rebuilding the area. The graft material eventually transforms into your natural bone.

Where are bone-grafting materials obtained from?

Bone grafting materials are obtained from one or more sources. Autograft material is taken from another part of the patient’s body and transplanted to the place where the bone is missing. It is considered the best graft material as it contains the body cells of the patient himself. In this process, disease transmission risks are minimal. However, a second surgery is needed, which adds to the pain. Another drawback of the procedure is that enough harvestable bone in other body parts may not be available too easily.

Allograft bone, on the other hand, is taken from an organ donor and duly processed just to ensure no disease is transmitted. Allograft bone is available easily and patients do not need to undergo a second surgery. Allograft bones have an excellent safety record. Benefits of these bones are:

  • Easy availability
  • Second surgery not required
  • Clinically proven effective
  • Safety track record

At Lifetime Teeth Today, we use Allograft bone for the minimally invasive, faster, one-step process, and for the comfort and convenience of our patients.
