Implants need to be anchored in strong bones. If bone has deteriorated, Dr. Scolnick may need to perform a bone graft. Bone grafting is a safe and routine procedure used to reinforce deteriorated bone in the jaw that allows Dr. Scolnick to securely anchor implants. During a bone graft demineralized, sterile human bone granules and a patient’s own bone minerals are used to build up weakened areas of the jaw so implants can be successfully installed.
