Dependable Bone Grafts
Bone grafting can play a key role in your dental implant surgical plan. After all, transplanted bone can provide a strong basis for your new smile.
Bone grafting is an important intervention when your jawbone is in poor condition, perhaps due to missing teeth, injuries, or gum disease.
If your bone loss seems minor, it may be possible for your doctor to place special membranes that will dissolve under the gums to protect the bone graft; this process is called guided bone regeneration. On the other hand, addressing more significant bone loss, like that which results from congenital defects, trauma, or surgery, may necessitate a bone transplant.
