Question:
Is bone craft necessary for bridge? Do I need bone graft to get a bridge?

My dentist charged me for a bone graft but my insurance does not cover it.

I would like to know whether it is normal for patient ... Visitor from AZ

Answer:
Bone grafts are recommended when there is deficient bone.

The areas of need could be at or near the anchor teeth locations (or implant sites) or it could be along the spaces between the anchor points.

In some cases, the addition of bone graft material along an area where there are no teeth can help control the resorption of bone in those areas, which could be critical for maintaining good oral health with in the immediate are of the prosthesis.

I suspect your dentist is trying to help keep your jaw from resorbing away, which can cause more teeth to fail, if not treated.
