Many patients come to our periodontal practice, Dr. Danny Joseph, in order to get a bone grafting procedure performed. Oftentimes this is because they have been told that they are not a good candidate for dental implants because the jawbone is not healthy enough. However, a Deer Park bone graft of the jawbone can actually make them a great candidate for getting dental implants.
Today it is very common for patients to get a Deer Park bone graft because they want to strengthen and thicken their jawbone so that they can become successful candidates for getting dental implants. Generally, when patients are turned down to get dental implants, it is because their jawbone is not healthy enough and thick enough, and so it will not be able to withstand the dental implant surgery, nor be able to allow the dental implant to fully fuse to it. However, when a bone grafting procedure is performed at our office, patients can have their jawbone thickened so that it can firmly hold a dental implant root. A bone graft is performed to either supplement the bone around existing teeth, or in the future recipient site of the implant. The bone plan will work to strengthen bone support for the existing tooth, or will actually create a more stable base for the dental implant. Dental implants are so secure because they fully fuse to a healthy jawbone, which ensures that they will not shift from any type of chewing motion. If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for getting dental implants because of your jawbone, will definitely want to come in to see our periodontist regarding getting a bone graft. Sometimes bone grafts are also performed to fix a jaw after some type of trauma. Bone grafts will also generally enhance the patient’s appearance as it restores them to a more youthful look.
Today, a Deer Park bone graft is a common and safe periodontal procedure. If you would like to meet with our periodontist regarding this treatment, contact us today for an appointment.
