Bone Grafting May Help You Qualify for Dental Implants
If you have missing teeth, you may have considered dental implants at LN Dental Chester Hill, NSW. Missing teeth can change the way you talk, dictate your dietary selections and even lead to future dental health problems. For these reasons, we recommend tooth replacement if you suffer from tooth loss.
If you’ve been told that you do not have sufficient jawbone to support dental implants, we may be able to help you.
1, How Dental Implants at LN Dental Chester Hill, NSW Work
A dental implant is a strong post that your dentist implants in your jawbone. We can perform this implant placement right here in our dental surgery. This post stands in for your lost tooth root and becomes the foundation for your replacement tooth—also called a dental crown. Typically, implant post placement requires healing time, usually several months, prior to tooth crown placement.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers your dental implant and acts like a replacement tooth. This technology allows you to speak normally, enjoy your favourite foods, and helps protect your natural teeth from wear and shifting.
2, Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
When you have a missing tooth or teeth, your jawbone shrinks away. In some cases, you do not have sufficient jawbone to support a dental implant. Maybe you have even been told that dental implants will not work for you.
Fortunately, your dentist at LN Dental Chester Hill, NSW offers bone grafting to improve the bone quality, and help make you a candidate for dental implants. Bone grafting relies on your own bone or donor bone or lab-fabricated bone material.
Your dentist makes sure you’re numb and comfortable before bone grafting, and most patients say that recovery is simple—a day or two of mild discomfort and swelling, which is simple to manage with medication.
