Bone Graft in Garland, TX
A dental implant replaces the root of a natural tooth and therefore needs a certain level of bone to support the implant.
There are numerous clinical reasons why the bone surrounding the supporting teeth may have eroded over time, including the following:
- Bone defects or infection
- Acid erosion
- Cracked teeth
- Extensive cavities
- Bone is too thin or short to support implants
- Untreated periodontal disease
- Missing teeth
- Other medical conditions
- Poorly-fitting dentures
- Bone density weakness
At Smile Again Dental, we can identify if you have adequate bone strength to support a dental implant before completing the procedure. If not, we will use bone grafting to supplement your current bone level. A successful bone graft allows you to generate new bone to provide support for your dental implants.
Dr. Wilstead will determine the best type of bone grafting for your individual needs. There are many options available such as synthetic, animal-based, ceramic, polymer and even autologous (your own). You can discuss the pros and cons of each option with Dr. Wilstead at your implant consultation.
