A bone graft can be taken from the patient itself, it’s called an autograft. It can also be taken from another person, an animal or it could be synthetic.
In this video, we had to graft a bone block in the front upper region, to gain enough bone for future implants. The graft was taken from the ramus part of the mandible and an impacted wisdom tooth was removed at the same time. The graft was then split in half and fixed with screws.
