Bone grafting procedures make it possible for you to get dental implants if you were not considered a good candidate for them as the result of an insufficiently thick jaw bone structure. Here at the office of Michael Kushner DDS, this surgery is performed with the expertise and attention to detail you expect.
When you come in for an examination and testing, a determination is made as to whether or not you need our bone grafting 10303. Bridges and dentures, the traditional teeth replacements, rest on top of the gums, but implants are anchored in the jaw. And because of that, your bone tissue must meet a certain standard so that your bone will grow around and fuse with the implant to create a dependable foundation that is similar to a natural root. Our bone grafting 10303 addresses a jaw bone that is not acceptable for the placement of implants. The way it works is that bone tissue is harvested from elsewhere in your body, or alternatively gotten from a donor bank. This tissue is transplanted into your jaw, where it will spur the growth of new and stronger bone. The amount of time for the bone to develop is several months, with the time frame varying depending on the individual. However, the result is that you can now get an implant, which is the state-of-the-art when it comes to restoring lost teeth. An implant looks, feels, and performs just like a natural tooth. And if you take good care of it, there is every reason to expect that it can last you for your entire life.
