What If I Don’t Have Enough Bone for Dental Implants?

Most people with teeth loss have been feeling concerned about their looks and appearance after using dental implants for smile restoration.
According to standard treatment, dental implants are highly recommended and effective only when the patient has enough bone density.
Bone loss is one of the side effects of long term missing teeth, leaving many patients short of other alternatives.
Our professionally trained dentists suggest that dental implants can be a perfect option with the assistance of bone grafting.
Bone grafting is a process whereby the bone is added to the Jaw to improve the density, strength, and rigidity of the oral structures.
The bone can be taken from any part or region of the body such as the hip or shoulder, it can also be taken from the Cadaver tissue or from an animal. The bone is strategically and professionally placed into the Jaw where needed in an outpatient operation that usually lasts in a few hours.
When the bone is completely healed, probably in six to nine months, then dental implants can be placed for smile restoration.
Bone grafting is a technique that should only be performed by a qualified and highly skilled dentist.
