Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies and reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants and bone grafts are needed.
New technology allows us an opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing but promote new bone growth in that location. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.
Missing some or all of your teeth can cause facial collapse, bone and soft-tissue deterioration, and many other serious oral health conditions. Dental implants have a transformative impact on the way your smile looks, feels, and functions. This procedure has both cosmetic and restorative benefits, as it enhances your ability to eat and speak normally, as well as improving the way your smile looks, and the confidence you have in it. We use highly advanced technology such as 3D CT scans to carefully plan your treatment, providing you with the most specialized results. With the proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime and provide you with a healthy, gorgeous grin for the rest of your life.
Timeline & Procedure
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. Generally, the healing process for getting dental implants takes between three to six months and will vary from patient to patient. The overall treatment process from consultation to the final placement of the restoration will take roughly six to ten months, sometimes longer in certain circumstances. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.
