Madison Avenue Implant Dentist
Implant Dentist on Madison Avenue
When a tooth is missing or has to be extracted due to advanced decay, gum disease, injury or another dental problem the patient can have that tooth replaced by our Madison Avenue implant dentist at the Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, where we specialize in using dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants have revolutionized how dentistry goes about replacing teeth by placing an artificial root directly into the jawbone, which will become part of the bone to securely hold a crown that becomes the new tooth.
Whether a tooth has been extracted or has been lost naturally after a while the jawbone associated with the missing tooth atrophies or is reabsorbed and may not leave enough good quality bone that is suitable for the placement of an implant. Our Madison Avenue implant dentist has the ability to grow bone where it is needed through the process of bone grafting. Bone grafts are performed to repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure, or to increase bone strength and depth on the upper jaw next to the maxillary sinus, or to increase dimension in the jaw ridge. Our practice will perform minor and major bone grafts. Typically, repairs of defects of the jaw due primarily to traumatic injuries, tumor surgery or congenital defects will require a major bone graft. In order to perform a bone graft our doctors will use bones obtained from a tissue bank, usually taken from a cadaver, of your own bone harvested from your jaw, hip, cranium or tibia. When dealing with a major bone graft our doctors will use a graft that is taken from the patient’s own body.
The various types of bone grafts performed by our Madison Avenue implant dentist make it possible for our patients to have dental implants where just a few years ago they would have not been able to be placed. The grafted bones help stimulate the patient’s bone growth in the area making the site for the implant stronger.
