Sheepshead Bay Bone Grafting
Bone Grafting in Sheepshead Bay
If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for getting dental implants, you should definitely visit us for a second opinion at our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre. At our dental implant practice, you can receive Sheepshead Bay bone grafting which may make you an excellent candidate for getting dental implants.
When you come to our dental practice, you will be seen by one of our top-notch implant dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Dale Goldschlag. Many times, patients are told that they cannot get dental implants because their jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the dental implant procedure. It is also important that the jawbone is thick so that the new dental implant root can firmly fuse to the jawbone. Sheepshead Bay bone grafting can make the jawbone both healthier and stronger, making a patient an excellent candidate for getting dental implants, once the bone grafting procedure is completed. When a person loses a tooth, it is natural for the jawbone to atrophy. If the tooth has been missing for a considerable amount of time, the jawbone most likely will have atrophied.
When this happens, and the jawbone has been reabsorbed, the jawbone will be weakened. So, it is not unusual for patients to need to have a bone grafting procedure if they have experienced tooth loss over a year ago. However, your jawbone can become suitable for the placement of dental implants once it is restored with a bone grafting procedure. Bone grafting can be performed on the lower jaw, or sinus augmentation will be performed on the upper jaw, to make you a good candidate for getting dental implants. However, in order to possibly prevent needing this treatment, you will want to come in for a dental implant as soon as you experience tooth loss, if possible.
