When There is Not enough Bone For an Implant
When a tooth is lost or extracted, the remaining jaw bone becomes susceptible to bone deterioration, if the problem is not addressed with a bone graft. This procedure promotes healing in the jawbone and eliminates the problems that can occur when a tooth is lost. A bone graft will provide structural stability and linkage, as well as stimulating oseogenesis, or healing in the jawbone.
Taking care of the jaw bone when a tooth is removed or lost is very important and can often be overlooked.
