What is a bone graft and when would I need one?
A bone graft is a surgical procedure that may be required prior to receiving dental implants. At Mayfair Dentistry, we need to ensure that you have the adequate bone strength to support a dental implant before we are able to install them.
There are a number of problems that can cause bone surrounding the supporting teeth to erode and thus require a bone graft procedure, including; cracked or missing teeth, bone weakness or defects, cavities, or other medical conditions. A successful bone graft allows you to generate new bone to provide support for dental implants so that your smile restoration is effective and permanent.
Once you have completed the procedure and healed from your bone graft, you’re ready to move on to receive your new dental implants. Please contact us at (408) 923-8500 and schedule a consultation to find out if dental implants are the best choice for you.
