Valley Stream Dental Office
If you are thinking about getting dental implants, it is very important that you have a healthy jawbone. This is because as part of the dental implant procedure, you will need to have a titanium dental implant root surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. The dental implant root will then need to fully fuse to the jawbone. This is why dental implants make such a solid foundation for replacement teeth. However, it also illustrates why you need to have an extremely healthy and thick jawbone in order to get dental implants. Sometimes, patients are told that they are not a good candidate for dental implants because their jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough. At our dental office in Valley Stream, Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, patients are able to get a bone grafting procedure which will allow their jawbones to be able to successfully hold dental implants.
At our dental practice, just one of our expert and highly trained implant dentists is Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag. If you have been told you are not a good candidate for dental implants due to the condition of your jawbone, our implant dentist will most likely be able to help you. Patients at our dental office in Valley Stream can get a bone grafting procedure which will greatly improve the condition of their jawbone. When a patient has missing teeth, the jawbone will reabsorb. When you have dental implants, the dental implant root will keep this from occurring and this is just one benefit of getting dental implants. However, if you have a missing tooth and the jawbone does atrophy, the jawbone often becomes of poor quality and quantity and cannot hold dental implants. However, a bone grafting procedure will change this situation for the better.
Today, our implant dentist is able to help your jawbone grow bone where it is needed. Once this bone grafting procedure is complete, your jawbone will be able to strongly hold dental implants of the proper length and width. A restored jawbone will make the jawbone more functional, and will even improve your aesthetic and youthful appearance. Bone grafting may also be needed when a patient suffers from gum disease, or has experienced an injury to the jawbone.
