Massapequa Park Dentist
Dentist in Massapequa Park
If you have been told that you are a poor candidate for dental implants because your jawbone is not thick or healthy enough, we often can correct this problem with a simple bone grafting procedure. Many patients come to our dental practice, Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, and successfully get dental implants when they have been told in the past that they are not eligible for this procedure. At our practice, we have many excellent cosmetic and implant dentists including, Dr. Barry Hertzl Habib. Our Massapequa Park dentist will discuss your individual situation with you.
Bone grafting will be able to strengthen your jawbone and make it healthy and thick enough so that it can easily heal from the oral surgery needed when you get a dental implant, as well as be able to strongly hold a dental implant root which will need to fuse to it. Bone grafting is now a very common procedure that is used to help patients become excellent candidates for dental implants. When a patient loses a tooth, the jawbone will naturally atrophy and become thinner and weaker. Having dental implants will keep this from occurring, and is just one of the many benefits of having dental implants. When you have a jawbone that has atrophied, not only is it less healthy, but it will affect your appearance so that it is less youthful. A bone grafting procedure of your jawbone will actually allow your jawbone to grow bone where it is needed, making it thicker and healthier. Once this occurs, our Massapequa Park dentist will be able to provide you with dental implants of the proper size and with so that you can have strong and functional dental implants.
