A Bone Graft Can Help Change Your Life

It’s no secret that dental implants can change a person’s life in a dramatic way. Restoring a patient’s teeth is one of the things we love most. It’s gratifying to see a patient look in the mirror at their new smile for the first time.

If you’re missing teeth and have been told that implants were out of the question because of a weak jawbone, you may not be hopeful that anything can be done. However, Dr. Asma Zia can perform a bone graft procedure to prepare your jaw for implants and new replacement teeth. It’s one of the most common reasons for a graft.

She will insert donor bone or synthetic bone in your jawbone. Over the course of a few months, new bone cells will grow, and your jawbone will become thicker and sturdier. You’ll then be ready for implants. Your implant options include:

  • Implant Bridge – Unlike a conventional bridge, this restoration is supported by implants. This means no modification of healthy teeth is needed.
  • Implant Dentures – You can choose dentures that you can remove or dentures that stay in place until removed by a dentist.
  • All-on-4 Procedure – With this treatment you can get implants and new teeth all on the same day.
