Dental Implants Are More Successful Than Ever: Advancements in Bone Grafting
POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 05, 2015 AT 4:34 PM by Dr. Mark Stein
Gone are the days of the Tooth Fairy. Unlike when we were younger, lost teeth won’t grow back; instead, we are left with an empty space as a permanent reminder. Such gaps are not only unsightly, but they also lead to problems eating and cause overall discomfort. However, imagine getting artificial teeth that look, feel, and act like your real ones! That’s where dental implants come in. Dental implants have become one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth! Unlike traditional dentures and bridgework, dental implants fit comfortably and securely without the need for special care. Due to recent technological advancements, people who lacked the bone density to qualify for dental implants can now enjoy natural-looking and permanent substitutes! By combining bone grafting and dental implant surgery, you can replace missing teeth and ensure the success of anchoring your new teeth! At New York Oral Surgery, Dr. Stein is at the forefront of both bone grafting and dental implant technology!
One such technology is the Cone Beam CT scan, which measures your jaw density and ensures that your dentals implants are placed correctly and can produce the desired results for years to come! When undergoing dental implant surgery, sometimes the jawbone lacks the bone density required to support the implant being inserted; this leads to a smaller implant being inserted as a replacement, which can ruin the entire process. That’s why Dr. Stein offers the Cone Beam CT scan in order to properly measure your jaw bone’s exact volume and density. By recording these measurements, Dr. Stein can determine exactly how much bone grafting is needed in order to properly anchor your dental implants. Once your teeth are extracted, the precise bone graft is placed to increase density in preparation of your dental implant.
