Dental implants are an wonderful way to replace missing teeth. They offer a strong, secure way to support the mouth, as well as looking and feeling incredibly natural and comfortable.
As a dental implant requires a metal ‘root’ to be implanted into the jaw bone, onto which the new false teeth are attached, it is necessary to ensure there is a sufficient amount of bone available to support the implant.
Infection or simply the wear and tear of having a denture can mean that some patients have experienced a reduction in the amount of bone in the jaw. In these cases, our experienced team of clinicians can offer a bone graft.
A bone graft may be carried out at the same time as an implant is placed, or prior to this. Once bone graft treatment is complete and healed, you can go ahead with the dental implant treatment in order to give you a beautiful smile you can be proud to show off to the world.
