Bone Grafting Midtown Manhattan
Midtown Manhattan Bone Grafting
Bone grafting is a common procedure that is done in order to grow bone where there is insufficient bone. In a bone graft, donor bone is taken from an outside source and fused to the existing bone to create more room for certain dental procedures such as implants. At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre we do bone grafting Midtown Manhattan for patients in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Inadequate bone structure usually happens due to missing teeth or gum disease. Injury can also be a reason for the deterioration of bone. During a grafting procedure, your dentist will obtain bone from a tissue bank or from the patient’s own bone. The area used is usually the hip or tibia. Major and minor bone grafting procedures are done when jawbone becomes atrophied or reabsorbed into the gum after a missing tooth. Implants are used to replace missing teeth. Patients seeking a dental implant are not candidates, however, if they are missing bone or gum. But in a bone grafting Midtown Manhattan procedure, the patient can grow bone again so that dental implants can be placed to restore functionality. This also restores the aesthetic appearance of the jawline.
Bone grafting Midtown Manhattan surgery requires a hospital stay and is performed at a hospital in an operating room. Once the implant is completed, and a healing period of months given, an artificial tooth is placed over the implant. Sometimes bone grafts are done for sinus lifts. If the sinus wall is too thin, implants may be an option. A sinus lift or graft allows the dental surgeon to enter the sinus where the upper teeth were and to lift the sinus membrane upward so donor bone can be inserted. A healing period of several months is given so that the bone becomes part of the patient’s jaw and the implants later inserted.
