Restoring Your Jaw After Bone Has Been Lost
Living with missing teeth is never a pleasant experience, but what’s worse, is that the longer you go without replacing missing teeth, the more jaw bone volume you lose. When you are seeking to replace missing teeth with dental implants, a key factor to determining if you qualify is the amount of bone in your jaw. Adequate jaw bone volume is necessary to support the dental implant post and prevent it from failing, but when bone loss has occurred, many patients require bone grafting treatment to qualify. Bone grafting utilizes a small sample of bone from you or a donor source to restore the necessary volume acceptable for dental implants. At Durham Dental Solutions, we offer effective bone grafting techniques to help you qualify for dental implants.
