An implant is inserted under the gum to replace the roots of a missing tooth. Once an implant is firmly in place and the surrounding gum tissue is strong, it is ready to support a crown or denture. When the process is completed, the "new" tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth.
If the implant site does not have enough bone to support implant, a bone graft may be necessary. Bone loss can result from periodontal disease, injuries, cysts, infections or an extracted tooth. Normally, it can be determined if you will need a bone graft from your x-ray prior to surgery, but in some cases it is not discovered until opening the implant site.
Bone grafts are a simple, safe, and effective way to stimulate bone formation and increase bone volume.
Dental implant patients experience the benefits of new, permanent teeth, as well as a renewed confidence and improved quality of life.
