Many patients enjoy having their teeth replaced with dental implants because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. However, some people are told that dental implants are not a viable tooth replacement option for them. At our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, our Astoria dentist is able to provide you with bone grafting which will most likely make you an excellent candidate to get dental implants.
When patients are told they are not good candidates for getting dental implants, it is generally because their jawbone is not thick or healthy enough for the dental implant procedure. Not only must the jawbone be able to successfully heal from the dental surgery, but it also must be strong enough to securely hold the new dental implant. If the jawbone is not thick enough, it will not be able to do this and will make you a poor candidate for the procedure. However, at our dental practice, our Astoria dentist will be able to provide you with bone grafting so that your jawbone can become able to securely hold the dental implant. This means that you will be able to get a full-size dental implant and make you eligible to get regular dental implant tooth replacement.
Just one of our expert cosmetic dentists, who can help you with your total dental implant procedure, is Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag. At our dental implant center, we have many different ways that patients can have their missing teeth replaced with dental implants. A bone grafting is a common and safe procedure which allows a jawbone to grow new bone. Not only can this make a patient a good candidate for dental implants; it can help a jawbone heal from some type of trauma or other problem. When a patient loses a tooth, the jawbone will atrophy due to there being a missing tooth root. Bone grafting will help a patient regain their youthful appearance which was lost by the atrophying of their jawbone.
