Dr. Kashfian is a expert in bone grafts in the Beverly Hills and Chatsworth areas, especially for patients who lack sufficient bone density for dental implant placement. When a patient’s jaw bone has been damaged due to infection or resorption, bone grafting procedure may be necessary. Placement of dental implant in a jaw without sufficient bone density often leads to the failure of the process. Therefore, it is essential to restore lost or damaged bone prior to the placement of dental implant.
Bone can be harvested from various locations of an individual’s body. This includes other parts of jaw, or even the hip. Other options for bone grafting include allograft, donor bone material, and synthetic grafting materials. Depending on the amount of bone needed, the process of bone regeneration may take months. However, when minimal amount of bone density needs to be restored, bone grafting can be completed on the same day of the dental implant surgery.
