Keene, NH dentist provides jawbone grafting to prepare the smile for dental implants
Dental implants are a wonderful solution for patients who have experienced tooth loss. These restorations are highly desirable because of their longevity and versatility. However, in order to be a proper candidate for dental implants, patients need to have sufficient jawbone structure available for successful surgery. Without this, the implant placement will fail. Drs. Tae Kwon and Howard Yen are board-certified periodontists who are committed to ensuring patients have access to the solutions they need, even if they are not currently a good candidate. Bone resorption that has occurred from tooth loss can be restored with jawbone grafting in Keene, NH.
How does a bone graft work in your jaw?
Just like grafting skin, bone is grafted with man-made or donated bone material. During the procedure, the periodontist will place the donor material where it is needed, allowing the dentist to rebuild the jaw and prepare it for the placement of dental implants in the future. Rebuilding these areas of deterioration is done during an oral surgery and is performed by experienced, skilled professionals at Monadnock Perio and Implant Center. Keene, NH area patients can consult with our team to learn more about how the procedure is performed and what to expect from it.
What can I expect from jawbone graft healing?
There are different types of bone grafting performed, including minor bone grafting and major bone grafting. Minor bone grafting is done to build up bone in preparation of placing an implant. Patients who have a significant amount of bone loss from cysts, tumors, cancer, trauma, or a birth defect may require major bone grafting which often requires additional material and is more invasive. Talk to Dr. Kwon and Dr. Yen about which type of bone grafting will assist you in restoring your smile.
