Rebuild a Weak Jaw With a Grafting Procedure

From the foods you love to the confidence you feel while smiling, your teeth can impact all facets of your life. If you have missing teeth, you may just not feel like yourself. At our practice, your dentist can replace your missing teeth with dental implants. However, if you have lived with missing teeth for a while, you may need a procedure to strengthen your jaw prior to getting implants. That’s when your dentist may recommend a bone graft.

Once your grafting procedure is complete, and your jaw has had time to incorporate the bone material, your dentist can move forward with placing your implants. Your options at our office include:

  • Implant Crown Combination – A dental crown attached to an implant can replace one missing tooth. Your dentist can create your crown in-house with our CEREC machine, streamlining your entire appointment.
  • Implant Bridges – For several missing teeth in a row, a dental bridge supported by implants can give you back a complete smile. You can take care of your new restoration like normal. Plus, you can eat any foods you want again.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Instead of using adhesive, secure your dentures to implants. They remain in place like your natural teeth. Depending on the kind of dentures you choose, you can practice your normal oral hygiene routine instead of removing your teeth at night. Plus, your jawbone stays resistant to future bone loss.
