Strengthening Your Implants
What should I expect from a bone graft?
If you go to the right dental specialist, you will be well taken care of and the procedure should be fairly easy and fairly pain-free, if a little uncomfortable. Your dental specialist will either take a section of bone from another part of your body, or will use a synthetic material. This will be discussed with you and you will be given the options. Sometimes, the bone graft is done before the implant to give the graft time to settle, strengthen and grow. If your procedure is not complicated, the graft and implant can be done at the same time.
If you need a dental implant, contact the AMDC. They will discuss the options with you and go over the procedure. Sometimes a bone graft is not necessary but if it is needed, your specialist at AMDC will tell you everything.
When are dental implants recommended?
Missing a tooth, especially when it is a visible part of the mouth, is horrible. Apart from the fact that a gap in your teeth looks really horrible, it also makes it hard to eat and hard to talk. It can also deplete your self-confidence. Dental implants are recommended for anyone who wants to improve their smile and their quality of life. A dental implant is a fairly simple procedure. Your dentist will evaluate your mouth and your teeth, take a mold of your mouth and send off the mold to a dental technician. You may be given a temporary tooth or implant in the meantime, while your dental implants are designed.
