Bone Grafting - Patient Education
Gordon explains bone shrinkage after extraction and the inadequacy of the body to produce enough replacement bone to allow optimum esthetics and function. The different types of grafts and how they stimulate new bone growth are discussed. Before and after clinical examples are shown to help your patients see the esthetic benefit of having a bone graft. Gordon discusses the advantages, disadvantages, risks, and results of doing nothing. He tells patients to consult with their own practitioner about their specific situation – whether or not a graft is necessary for an optimum result, their alternatives (if any), and costs.
