Dental implants are the best choice for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. Before undergoing this procedure, you must first meet with one of our professional dentists to see if you qualify. There is a major problem that can stop or delay us from the dental implant process though which has to do with the bones.

If you have had missing teeth for a long period of time, the bone originally supporting the tooth will start to break down and deteriorate. When this happens it will be impossible to install any tooth implants. Bone augmentation for dental implants is the solution to this problem and must be done several months before the implant procedure.

The bone augmentation for dental implants process restores and replaces lost bone matter caused by missing teeth. A dentist will insert extra bone, either natural or fake, into the jaw where gaps are located. Your own bones may be used in the procedure as well and if so it would be taken from either from the area that we are placing the dental implant in or the lower jaw or chin. If you have had missing teeth for longer than a few months, then the process could be a bit more complicated and must be done at a very slow pace.

To do a bone augmentation, the dentist must cut into the gums to see how much bone is needed. They will then cut an incision into the area where the bone will be extracted from or gather synthetic bone and insert it into the needed spot. The incisions must be fully healed before moving on to the dental implant procedure. You will be given painkillers and a special mouthwash during this time. The expected time for the bone to join to you bone can be anywhere from three to twelve months depending on various factors such as the quantity of gaps needed to be filled and typical dental fees.
