Chin Block Harvesting
WARNING – VERY GRAPHIC: Chin Block grafts are, inarguably, the best bone material that can represent the nearest match possible when adding bone tissue to deficient areas in the upper or lower jaw. Healing and osseointegration is superb and outperforms, for most patients, all other forms of graft resource (hip bone, allograft, irradiated cadaver bone, etc).
Watch Dr. Brant remove a small block of bone from the chin that will be used to repair a deficient area of the patient’s jawbone. Chin bone regenerates quickly and completely without incident. Bone tissue does not contain nerve tissue and despite the graphic quality of the surgery, patients who choose to donate their own bone are very comfortable during the procedure.
Recommended viewing for patients considering graft procedures to recreate a healthy environment for new teeth implants.
Patients seeking additional information or details about specialized treatment sessions or appointments are invited to contact Dr. Brant directly via our on-line Ask The Dentist form during or after usual business hours.
