Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace missing teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post.
A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure that may be required if your jawbone is not dense or thick enough. While we typically see best results with bone taken from your own body, we can also utilize artificial bone material or bone fragments from a tissue bank if needed. Your jawbone then grows together with the grafted bone tissue, creating a stronger, more stable foundation.
