Bone Grafting for Implants
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth roots. They also help maintain the density of bones in the area of the jaw they are implanted in. However, to begin with, the implant needs to fuse with the jawbone they are inserted in and provide a strong base.
Unfortunately, if this area has lost bone density due to a long period of no teeth in the area, the implant may not have a stable foundation. In such situations, a bone graft can be done to replace the missing bone, and later an implant can be fixed in it.
