Bone Grafting Reviews
While dental implants are a popular choice for tooth replacement, not every patient who is missing teeth immediately qualifies for dental implant placement. Patients who have been missing a tooth or teeth for an extended period of time often suffer from other oral health issues aside from tooth loss, most commonly jaw bone deterioration. When teeth are missing from their sockets, the jaw bone loses the stimulation caused by chewing, and without this stimulation, the bone begins to lose height and width. When this occurs, there is often not enough bone to adequately support dental implants. Fortunately, there are various bone grafting procedures that can restore the jaw bone and allow for successful dental implant placement.
Whether you are in need of a sinus lift (upper jaw bone grafting procedure), a socket preservation, or a ridge expansion, our oral surgeon is highly qualified for treatment. Many patients have visited our office in Mt. Kisco, NY, looking for dental implants and have received bone grafting procedures before the successful placement of their implants. We encourage you to watch their stories below to hear more about their treatment; not all hope is lost if you have been missing a tooth for a long time. Bone grafting may be the solution you need to be able to receive dental implants, and we suggest listening to past patients’ experiences to learn more about whether bone grafting is right for you. If you still have questions, please contact our office; we are always happy to speak with you.
