Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. However, they cannot be placed in all circumstances. One person must have sufficient mass and volume in the bone that receives them. Otherwise, they will not fit well into the jawbone. In that case, It is possible to ensure the success of the implantation by first performing a bone graft. Your Ottawa general dentist offers this surgery at General Dentist Solutions.
When is bone grafting necessary?
Implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone and onto which a crown, bridge or denture can be placed. For the implantation to be successful, the bone must be deep and thick enough. If this is not the case, the implants will not have the necessary foundation to attach properly. This is when bone grafting comes in handy: it helps to increase the mass and volume of bone that has resorbed.
