When you lose a tooth, you lose bone with it.
Rebuilding the bone for dental implants is very common. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of information made available to patients about where the bone comes from.
In this video, I will describe bone material options such as human, cow (bovine), your own bone and synthetic.
