Bone Grafting Reviews
When teeth have been missing for too long, it can be difficult to place dental implants because the jaw bone has gone an extended period of time without stimulation, which causes it to deteriorate. When this deterioration is too extensive, there is not enough of a foundation to support dental implant placement, which is where bone grafting comes in. In a bone grafting procedure, synthetic bone, or even bone from another part of your body, such as your hip or tibia, can be used to supplement the jaw bone you have left. An oral surgeon will place the bone into your jaw, and over the next few months, this bone will integrate with the rest of your jaw bone until it can be used to support dental implant placement.
There are various bone grafting procedures, from socket preservation to ridge expansion to sinus lifts; Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is bound to perform the type of bone graft you need.
