How Bone Grafting Can Help With Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implant technology has taken center stage as one of the premier ways to solve the issue of missing teeth for people around the world
However, because dental implants are surgically placed into bone, enough bone material must exist for them to be anchored in place. When a patient does not have enough bone to support a dental implant, bone grafting procedures may be an option.
Bone grafting is a process whereby the dentist surgically attaches bone material from the patient or a donor source to the site where the bone is needed. As the healing begins, the existing bone will naturally begin to fuse with the grafted bone, forming a stronger overall amount of bone. In time, the bone should be sturdy enough to support the titanium post of a dental implant.
