Bone Grafting

Replacing missing teeth is essential for restoring your smile, your oral health, and your quality of life. Dental Implants have quickly become the most popular treatment for achieving these goals. However, in order for the implants to be successful, it is important that you have sufficient bone mass remaining in your jaw.

While dental implants are incredibly popular and have a very high success rate, they do rely on your bone mass for stability. However, following tooth loss, your jawbone begins to lose mass and grow weak. This is a result of the lack of stimulation from your teeth. When you chew, your teeth stimulate the bone, which tells the body that nutrients are needed. Following tooth loss, you lose stimulation. The body responds by sending fewer nutrients. When the bone is too weak, it cannot successfully support dental implant posts, which can then lead to implant failure.
