Madison Avenue NYC Bone Grafting
There are various reasons, minor and major, why you may need our Madison Avenue NYC bone grafting, and they include the augmentation of your jaw bone in preparation for a dental implant, and the treatment of jaw defects, especially due to traumatic oral injuries. At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we are proud to have highly skilled cosmetic dentists who are specialists at these procedures.
Dental implants are a magnificent way to replace missing teeth. Unlike bridges or dentures, they replace the root as well as the tooth, and they don’t require any messy adhesives to hold them in place, nor do they have any effect on your surrounding teeth. But if your jaw is not thick enough to support the implant, you can avail yourself of our Madison Avenue NYC bone grafting to correct the problem. It’s simply a matter of harvesting bone from another part of your body, and then using it to strengthen your jaw. New bone will grow in around the grafted bone, and once it heals then you are ready to move forward with getting a dental implant.
Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects. Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different sites depending on the size of the defect. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.
Our Madison Avenue NYC bone grafting procedure, for either dental implants or for addressing the effects of oral trauma, is a highly successful procedure, and is safe to undergo, particularly when done by a skilled and experienced cosmetic dental specialists, such as ours.
