Bone grafting is usually a procedure that is associated with a tooth extraction or dental implant procedure. The bone material is placed at the site to improve the amount of bone and the structure of the jaw. In the case of extractions, bone will be added to the site so that the bone that was surrounding the extracted tooth does not weaken. In the case of implants, bone material may be added to the implant site so that the area is more sturdy to hold the implant securely in place. A bone graft is a somewhat lengthy procedure, but in most cases absolutely necessary.
