Sheepshead Bay Bone Grafting
Bone Grafting in Sheepshead Bay
Our Sheepshead Bay bone grafting is a method that can augment your jaw so that is will be capable of accepting a dental implant. Not everyone’s jaw bone tests sufficiently, so here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we’re pleased to give our valued patients every opportunity to take advantage of the most innovative replacements for missing teeth.
The reason that bridges or dentures do not depend on the strength of your jaw bone is that they lay on top of your gums. They are not supported beneath them. Only implants do so, which is why they remain unique in the world of full-tooth restorations. They are designed to mimic a real tooth, by having their own roots that go beneath the gum line and are anchored into the jaw itself. Before getting an implant, you will be examined and tested so that your suitability can be determined. Our Sheepshead Bay bone grafting could be required due to the effects of gum disease, an injury to the jaw, or previous extractions. Some people simply have a naturally thin and weaker jaw bone. The procedure is to take bone tissue, either from elsewhere in your body, or from a tissue bank. That bone it added to your jaw, which then stimulates the growth of new, thicker and stronger tissue around it. The entire process takes a few months, with the timeline depending on the individual. While it may take up to nine months for some, may people need far less time. When your bone has reached a point where it can then handle the implant, that procedure can begin.
We believe that no one should have to settle for any less than the advancements of dental implants when it comes to completing their smile. If our Sheepshead Bay bone grafting is a part of making that happen, you can depend on it being done expertly here. Please call our office to arrange an appointment.
