Bone Grafting For Dental Implants

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.
