Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
In these and many other situations in which a patient doesn’t have enough bone structure to have implants set in place, our implantologist will use a bone grafting procedure to give you the right amount of bone to successfully sustain a dental implant.
There could be several reasons why a patient would not have the sufficient amount of bone structure to handle an implant and thus would require a bone graft in order to successfully receive dental implants. Such reasons could include:
- When a socket is left with thin bone walls as a result of tooth extraction
- An instance where a patient has suffered a lot of bone damage & loss from an infection, or cysts.
- Gum disease (Periodontal disease)
- Dental trauma can also cause a patient to have significant bone loss.
