While implants work great for most patients, you do need to meet some minimum medical requirements in order for them to be successful. One of the necessary requirements is that you have enough bone to support your dental implant. Dr. Tatiana Herzog, Dr. Douglas Pyser, and Dr. Alvaro Betancur are our experts in the area of bone grafting. We offer bone grafting procedures in both our Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton locations.
Most people do not realize that when they lose teeth, they begin to lose bone levels in their jaw as well. Because your jaw and your teeth have a dependant relationship, when one begins to fail, the other often does as well.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, the best thing you can do is come in to either location right away for an evaluation so we can help you make a tooth replacement decision that will work best for you. If we can place an implant quickly after you experience tooth loss, we may be able to slow down or prevent further damage. If you require bone grafting, we can get you on track for success.
What Is Dental Bone Grafting?
If you do not have enough bone to support a dental implant for a missing tooth, you may be a good candidate for bone grafting. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that utilizes either synthetic bone, animal bone, or donor bone to help regenerate your jawbone and create a suitable base for a dental implant.
One of our skilled dentists will make sure you are completely comfortable for your procedure before we begin. We will surgically place the bone grafting material into the site to regenerate your bone and then allow it time to heal.
Once you heal properly, we will make sure you have enough bone to safely and effectively support an implant. Once you are ready, we will place your implant and crown in order to restore the health and function of your teeth. Like any other tooth, your implant will require regular exams and preventative care to keep it healthy.
Why Are Implants So Effective?
You might be wondering why we would go through all of this trouble just to place a dental implant. Dental implants are considered the most effective and reliable of all tooth replacement options. Because dental implants work very much like your biological teeth, they are easy to take care of, comfortable, and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Bone grafting is easier and more successful than ever. Our dentists have received additional training and have plenty of experience in order to have successful bone grafting procedures. You are in good hands when you visit one of our Florida dental offices.
