What is the treatment?
This is a surgical treatment is required by some patients undergoing the insertion of a dental implant.
These procedures are used to rebuild the bone and allow for the placement of an implant at the correct position.
The type of grafting used depends on the size and shape of the missing bone.
- Small defects can be rebuilt using special “biomaterials” at the same time as implant placement.
- Large defects may require block grafts prior to implant placement using your own bone, usually from either the chin or the wisdom tooth area and placing it at the space requiring the implants.
- Variations of 1 and 2 above may be used.
Options will be discussed with patients according to individual needs and confirmed on written treatment plans, with timing stages and costs of each phase of treatment.
