They are able to give away the best results in performing the bone graft surgery, as your own bones have your bone marrow and lets your bone to grow faster. The bones may be taken from your chin, ramus, or hips as these areas have more bone marrow and forms the bone faster.

If you are not willing for the autograft, you may opt for the allograft process. They are also considered when there’s a need of large blocks of bones for your jawbone including the additional costs for the same. They have a bit slower bone regeneration process in comparison than the autograft, but are available in more quantity for supporting the bone graft surgery.
