At the Dental Implant Center, we specialize in dental implant treatments to replace missing teeth and secure dental prosthetics such as dentures and bridges, but in some cases, there is not enough bone present in the jaw to secure these permanent tooth replacements. Our bone grafting procedure can help prepare the jaw for dental implant placement with minimal invasiveness.
Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how a bone grafting procedure can help start your journey to a more beautiful, healthier smile.
What is Bone Grafting?
In order to successfully place dental implants, a certain amount of bone needs to be present in the upper and lower jaws to provide a solid foundation for this fixed dental treatment. A traditional bone grafting procedure extracts bone from other areas of the body and adds the bone to the jaw area to create an ideal area for implant placement.
But at the Dental Implant Center, our experienced medical team can, in many cases, optimize your jaw for dental implants without having to remove any bone. Depending on your condition, our board certified prosthodontists may be able to reshape, expand, or manipulate existing bone to adequately prepare your mouth for dental implants.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
When advanced dental disease results in a loss of teeth, in many cases underlying bone is also lost. It is important to replace missing or extracted teeth to maintain the health of remaining teeth, and although a bone grafting procedure may seem less than ideal, it is part of a long-term solution to help prevent further dental issues.
Once the jaw can securely hold a dental implant, these permanent replacements are screwed in with biocompatible titanium screws and are designed to look and function like normal teeth. Implants can be used as a standalone solution or used in conjunction with bridges, dentures, or other fixed or removable dental prosthetics.
