So you’re excited about the prospect of getting one or more dental implants, but you find out that your jaw bone structure is insufficient to reliably accept and hold the implant. That may be disappointing, but it does not disqualify you from getting an implant. At Pangborn Dental Center, you can benefit from our Hackensack bone grafting, which addresses the concerns about your jaw, leading to a positive outcome and a renewed opportunity to replace your lost teeth with the state-of-the-art in full-tooth restorations.
Come in for a consultation and examination when you want to fill the empty space where you used to have teeth. While not everyone will be considered a good candidate for implants, the good news is that most people will be, if not right away, than with a little help. For example, if your gums are not healthy enough, periodontal treatment can reverse that. Likewise, our Hackensack bone grafting is the solution to a weak or thin jaw bone. If you’re wondering why your jaw is so integral to getting implants when that is not the case with traditional bridges and dentures, the answer is that an implant is anchored beneath your gums, with a post that acts as a new root. That post must become fused with your jaw bone in order to be viable. Addressing a deficit in your jaw bone is done by transplanting bone tissue from another part of your body. The new bone will spur your jaw to grow additional tissue that will be stronger and thicker, with the outcome that you can then have an implant placed.
Our Hackensack bone grafting is safe and effective, and performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. Why not reach out to our office right now and set up an appointment to come in and get started on the rewarding road to dental implants?
