Dental Implants: Will I Need Bone Grafting?

Dental Implants & Bone Grafting
Dental Implants are the perfect solution for patients who are suffering from missing teeth. This is because dental implants are designed to function, fit, and feel just like your natural teeth. Also, for patients who are suffering from missing teeth dental implants are a long-lasting solution. Oftentimes it’s necessary for bone grafting to be done to install dental implants.  

When Are Bone Grafts Necessary?
When it comes to making dental implant installation possible it is necessary that the patient has enough bone to support the dental implant. In cases where a patient doesn’t have a significant amount of bone to support the dental implant then they would benefit from bone grafting.

What Is The Bone Grafting Process?
The bone grafting process involves obtaining bone tissue from another part of the patient’s body. The graft bone tissue is then attached to the exposed gums and attached with a screw or a special dissolvable membrane. The gums are then sutured back into place to heal properly.
