11516 bone grafting
Bone grafting has various used, but it is most commonly put into action in support of placing dental implants. Here at Advanced Implant Dentistry and Oral Restoration, we are committed to making it possible for you to have the most advanced tooth replacement available. And with a specialist in charge, you can feel confident in the results you’re going to get.
Why would you need our 11516 bone grafting for a dental implant? Traditional bridges and dentures are surface replacements only. They have not roots to them. Implants do. What sets them apart is the root, which is represented by a titanium post surgically placed underneath the gums, directly into the jaw bone. Over several months, your bone tissue grows around the post and fuses with it. That is, it does so if your jaw structure is sufficiently strong and thick. If it isn’t, that’s where our 11516 bone grafting comes in. The way it works is that bone is taken from elsewhere in your body, or from a tissue bank. It’s then placed in your jaw where it spurs the growth of new and stronger tissue. At that point, you are able to begin the procedure of getting your implant to fill out your smile. If you’re wondering if it’s worth the effort, consider that implants look, feel, and function like real teeth, letting you chew even tough and crunchy foods without a worry. And if you take good care of your implant, there is every reason to think it can last you a lifetime. That’s worth a little effort, don’t you agree?
If you’re ready to move forward with evaluation for implants, contact our office and make an appointment to come in. And if testing shows you need our 11516 bone grafting, you’ll know just how valuable it is to the completed implant.
Preventive care is a great idea because when you don’t come in until there is a problem, the likelihood is that you will experience pain or other unpleasant symptoms, and the treatment required may be more complicated and costly. At Advanced Implant Dentistry and Oral Restoration, we suggest that you combine our recommendations for you at home with your visits to our Cedarhurst dentist two times per year for the most effective results.
Tooth decay and gum disease are both traced back to the effects of dental plaque. This film-like bacterial substance grows on and between teeth and at the gum line. Over time, small holes in your teeth may form. These cavities expose the inner portion of your tooth, which is associated with toothaches. As the cavity grows, you will be at risk for an infection, which may cause you to need root canal. You could even lose the tooth in the worst case. And when it comes to your gums, early stage gum disease is known as gingivitis. Irritation and redness are the usual symptoms. In time, though, that can lead to bleeding when you brush, receding gums, and persistent bad breath. Our Cedarhurst dentist will remove any of the plaque that escaped your oral hygiene at home, along with hardened tartar that formed from plaque that was hidden out of reach. A teeth cleaning is one of the very best ways to prevent problems with your teeth and gums. Not only will plaque and tartar be eliminated, but a cleaning will stop early stage gum disease from advancing, and reverse its effects.
Come in to see our Cedarhurst dentist every six months. Get a complete checkup and a teeth cleaning. You’ll put the odds very much in your favor to avoid more severe consequences from plaque and tartar. Call us right now to arrange an appointment.
