In a bone block graft surgery the patient’s existing bone material from the chin or the lower jaw areas is used. 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.
This type of bone grafting is used in cases, when bone has thinned out significantly as well as the severe jawbone deterioration has set in – and will not be able to provide a secure base for the implants to be attached. In such cases, significant bone deterioration is common, and the jawbone quality will benefit from a block bone graft.
