We can assure you that our 11516 bone grafting is safe, effective, and performed so as to keep you as comfortable as possible. It’s a valuable surgery that is essential to getting a dental implant if your jaw bone is not thick enough to support one on its own. Here at Advanced Implant Dentistry and Oral Restoration, our goal is to give you every opportunity to take advantage of the most advanced treatments, including in the replacement of lost teeth.
There are various features that set implants apart from traditional bridges and dentures. The most prominent of these is that they are constructed to mimic the qualities of your natural teeth. This means that there is a root beneath your gums, in addition to the prosthetic tooth above them. The root is a titanium post, and it is crucial to the success of the implant as a whole for your jaw bone to grow around the post and fuse with it. If your jaw structure is insufficient to get that result, that’s when you can benefit from our 11516 bone grafting. The procedure consists of using bone harvested from another part of your body, or bone tissue obtained from a donor bank, to augment your existing jaw bone. Over the course of a few months, new and stronger bone tissue grows in to surround the transplanted bone. The result is that you’re prepared for a new implant that you can rely on. Unlike with traditional bridges or dentures, there is no messy adhesive, no affect on your other teeth, and you’ll find that your implant looks, feels, and functions so much like a real tooth that you might even forget it’s even there.
