Bone Grafts for Dental Implants
Some patients do not have enough bone left in the jaw for the placement of dental implants. Fortunately, Dr. Melde provides a way for these patients to achieve a perfect smile with the use of tooth bone grafts to help support dental implants at our Yuma dentist office.
Patients with insufficient jaw bone volume can benefit from bone graft surgery. This bone graft dental surgery will restore proper bone mass to the jaw so that it can function properly. The increased bone mass will also prepare the mouth for dental implants so that the patient can achieve a beautiful, comfortable, and long-lasting smile.
Bone Graft Surgery
When teeth are missing, the jawbone is not properly stimulated, and this can result in bone loss. Bone loss may also stem from physical trauma. Bone loss for any reason can make a bone graft surgery necessary.
First, come talk with one of our dental professionals about your bone graft options. If he recommends a bone graft surgery, the process may vary from patient to patient.
A bone graft surgery involves placing bone granules into the jaw, usually through an extracted or missing tooth. Recovery after a bone graft surgery can take anywhere from two weeks to three months.
