A bone block graft is a surgical procedure using the patient’s existing bone material, from the chin or the lower jaw areas. This type of bone grafting is used in cases when severe jawbone deterioration has set in, and the bone has thinned out significantly – and will not be able to provide a secure base where the implants can be attached.
Bone block grafting is typically used for long-term denture users, or those who have suffered from tooth loss over a long period of time. In these cases, significant bone deterioration is common, and the jawbone quality will benefit from a block bone graft.
