At NUFFIELD DENTAL we understand the importance of quality bone grafting services in Singapore. When we lose our teeth, the bone holding the teeth typically begin to resorb. In order to prevent this phenomenon, your dental implant surgeon may need to graft teeth sockets with bone materials immediately upon removal of the tooth. The purpose of bone preservation techniques is to prepare the jaw bone to receive a dental implant. If you have lost teeth for many years, typically more complex bone grafting techniques will need to be employed.
The assessment of your bone volume and shape will involve a CT scan of the jaw. A CT scan will allow us to assess the exact shape and amount of bone in the areas of interest. We can then plan the type of bone grafting techniques suitable for the case. NUFFIELD DENTAL have low radiation CT scanners for your comfort and safety.
Types of bone graft materials that can be used:
- Autogenous bone grafts – taken from your own jaw
- Homologous bone grafts – from donor sources
- Xenografts – from other species e.g bovine sources
- Synthetic grafts – chemically created artificial materials
