With a bone transfer procedure, a portion of bone is removed from the the jaw of the patient. Then, the healthy bone tissue is placed on the resorption or collapsed area of the jaw bone. In this procedure which is called autogenous graft, the tissue are fixed is fixed to the jaw with the help of small screws.
