Bone Grafting Reviews
Patients who have been missing teeth for an extended length of time often want to restore their smile with dental implants but don't meet the requirements to be a qualified candidate. The main reason patients with missing teeth don't qualify to receive dental implants is because this extended period without teeth allowed their jaw bone to deteriorate to the point where it can no longer provide a solid foundation for implants. Fortunately, we can now restore jaw bones through various bone grafting procedures using either artificial bone or bone from another part of your body, usually another part of your jaw. Grafting new bone into the area where the implants will be placed provides the necessary support for successful integration between the implant screw and your jaw bone.
We encourage you to review the testimonials below if you still have questions regarding bone grafting procedures. Patients who have previously undergone bone grafting share their experience regarding the procedure and can help you manage your expectations. If you find you still have questions after viewing these videos, please feel free to contact one of our offices. We are happy to address any concerns you may have or to schedule an appointment with our expert oral surgeons, Dr. Clark, Dr. Young, and Dr. Lewallen.
