Solutions for future restorations
Dental implants are an incredible option to restore missing teeth or even the patient’s smile, but they do require the patient to have a certain amount of bone available for them to be placed and to last the patient for the…hopefully, the rest of their life. When we have patients that come to us regarding dental implants, oftentimes, they might not have enough bone in that area that they want to have the implant placed.
Here at the office, we can place grafts within those areas that rebuild and regenerate the bone so that we can then predictably and safely place in an implant. The downside to the bone graft is that it does take a little bit more time. We have to allow that bone in that area to mature and to adapt to the patient’s body. The service provides them with the opportunity to chew like they could chew on their natural teeth, and also to smile so that they can have that confidence that they desire.
