Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jawbone to loose bone, or resorb. This often results in poor amount of bone in both quality and quantity
Both of which are needed for the placement of dental implants. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants unless bone grafting is performed
Fortunately, today with medical and technological advances we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed to gain the appropriate bone height or width, but it also gives us a chance to restore form and functionality.
There are several various kind of grafting procedures depending on your particular case.
Schedule your consultation with Dr. Krajekian to discuss that various option options available from the minimally invasive techniques to advance techniques utilizing stem cell technology.
