POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 09, 2014 AT 1:28 PM  by Dr. Mark Stein

Are you considering dental implants, but aren’t quite ready for the surgery?  Dental implants can help you smile with radiance! These implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Unlike dentures or bridgework, dental implants will not shift, click, feel uncomfortable, hinder your diet or damage adjoining teeth. Dental implants require no extra maintenance and will help preserve your facial structure while giving you a beautiful smile! Dental implants in NY are surgically placed and may require Jawbone grafting if a patient does not have dense jawbone structure.

What is Jawbone Grafting?

Jawbone grafting in NYC is a procedure completed before dental implants. Most commonly used when existing jawbone is lacking density, grafting techniques help promote bone growth and create volume where future implants will be placed. Usually, the material used for jawbone grafting at New York City Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is either harvested bone from the patient, specially prepared bone from cadavers or synthetic material, or INFUSE®, an advanced new bone grafting material that uses protein to promote bone growth. Jawbone grafting usually takes around 4 to 9 months to heal before an implant can be placed.

Why do I need Jawbone Grafting after a tooth extraction?

Even if a patient has dense jawbone, after removing a tooth, if a dental implant is not placed, jawbone may begin to deteriorate. Various other ailments can cause your jawbone to weaken including, trauma, infection, gum disease, surgery, and congenital defects. Without a strong, substantial jawbone, dental implants cannot be supported.
