When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone structure begins to shrink. If an unhealthy tooth remains in the mouth too long, this process can be accelerated. In order to provide a proper foundation for a dental implant, your dentists may recommend bone grafting. At Simple Smiles, we offer three types of bone grafting procedures:
- Sinus lift
- Ridge augmentation
- Socket preservation
Bone grafting can enhance the bone and encourage bone growth to allow for the successful placement of a dental implant. Dr. Rojas may suggest bone grafting in conjunction with the placement of the dental implant or tooth extraction; it may also be recommend simply to facilitate placement of a dental implant. For more information on bone grafting and dental implants, we welcome you to contact our dental office in Paterson, New Jersey.
Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that provides exceptional stability and naturalistic results. The dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted in the jaw; after a period of healing, your talented dentists in Paterson, New Jersey will place the dental implant restoration. Your custom dental implant restoration may be a:
- Full denture
- Partial denture
- Dental crown
- Dental bridge
When your dental implant has been restored, it will improve your ability to chew, eat, and speak, enhance the beauty of your smile, and prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth. Because dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, they look and feel natural and are very secure.
