What are the different types of bone grafts?
There are many types of bone grafts available in the market.
Autogenous bone grafts which are basically bone from your own body are the gold standard material for generating bone. However, with recent advancements in the medical field, we can use processed demineralized and sterile bone from cadavers with good results (called Allograft).
Dr. Harouni often uses Allograft bone graft from cadavers mixed with platelet-rich plasma obtained from your own blood to retrieve the growth factors and stem cells to regenerate bone. Using this newest technology, we are able to prepare most parts of your jaw for future implant placement or replace missing bone in your jaw.
