What Redlands, CA patients need to know about bone grafting for dental implants

If you're considering dental implants you may have been surprised to learn that the procedure is not always possible without some dental work to prepare the mouth. Many patients who are considering dental implants learn that in order to support the implant they must first have a bone grafting procedure performed. Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry has helped countless Redlands, CA, patients improve the health and appearance of their mouth with dental implants. He explains the procedure.

What is bone grafting and why is it necessary?

Bone grafting for dental procedures involves adding bone grafting material to the jawbone in order to stimulate the growth of the jawbone. After the bone grafting procedure the bone begins to grow again and grows into the necessary places of the jawbone in order to support the implant.

Patients who need bone grafting lack enough bone density in their jawbone to support the insertion of a dental implant. This could be due to illness or gum disease. It also happens frequently in patients who put off dental implants after a tooth, or teeth, are lost. Many patients don’t realize that the roots of our teeth stimulate the jawbone. Without that stimulation the jawbone can begin to deteriorate and lead to the necessity of a bone grafting procedure.

Bone grafting improves the stability of dental implants

Patients who have the bone grafting procedure performed find that their dental implants will be stable and long lasting.

Dr. Vines and the entire team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry are committed to helping their patients understand and manage the dental implant process. From the initial consultation visit through any pre-procedures to prepare the mouth to the final step of placing the replacement tooth, the team is available to provide information and answer any questions or concerns.
