Has your dentist determined that you do not qualify for dental implants due to a lack of bone tissue? Dental implants allow teeth to be replaced with either permanent or removable attachments. If you do not have enough jawbone tissue for the procedure, there are ways your BX Dental dental professional can stimulate bone growth – namely dental bone grafting in Bronx, NY
More often than not, bone grafting is done by a set of specialists, particularly periodontist trained in fixing gum and bone structures.
In the first step of the dental bone grafting process, a complete examination of the mouth is conducted. X-rays and CT scans are also able to provide a more in-depth look at the current state of your jaw and its bone mass. By using these kinds of radiology techniques, a more accurate picture of your particular bone loss is painted, giving our dentist, an opportunity to follow through with the perfect procedure for you, whether that be bone grafting or a sinus lift surgery in Bronx, NY.
There is a particular technique called a ridge augmentation that is most often done to enhance bone mass. After opening gum tissues, we will then place a bone graft in a barrier membrane in order to protect it. Over a series of months, replacing the grafting material and membrane structure while simultaneously giving you back the bone mass you need to follow through with dental implant surgery.
The benefits of dental bone grafting are obvious. Not only will you be able to follow through with dental implant surgery, but an enhanced facial structure can also be of great added benefit to those who opt for bone grafting.
