If you’ve lost one or more teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or an injury, dental implants are one of the most aesthetic and effective ways to restore your smile. However, to place a dental implant, you must have a sufficient amount of healthy bone structure in the area where the implant will be placed.
But sometimes, typically when teeth are lost or removed without immediate replacement, bone loss can occur. Luckily, if you don’t have enough bone to serve as a strong, sturdy, and long lasting anchor for your dental implant, a bone graft may be recommended.
A bone graft is a procedure that augments the healthy bone in your jaw to stimulate regeneration that further restores your jawbone structure. Once you are fully healed from the procedure, you will be ready to receive dental implants, which not only replace your missing teeth but also helps prevent further jawbone loss.
