Bone Grafting

 

Bone Grafting -- February 12, 2015

Dental implants are often provided to people who have missing teeth and are hoping to find a more permanent solution. However, implants must have a sufficient amount of jaw bone to be placed securely and this isn’t always naturally the case. The missing teeth can cause the jawbone to atrophy and makes it difficult for the implant procedure to work.

Today, we have the ability to grow bone through bone grafting. Bone grafting helps grow enough bone at the implant site for placing the titanium post and completing a successful procedure.

Here at Fairwood Dental Center, we offer minor and major bone grafting. The main difference is exactly how much bone will need to be grafted. Some patients can get minor bone grafting that helps increase how much bone is present. Others require major bone grafting if they have more loss and the jawbone has been reabsorbed.

Patients who are in need of implants but don’t have enough bone to install the post have a great option in bone grafting when they come to our clinic. If you are in the Renton, WA area, call us at 425-271-7725 for a consultation.
