Bone Grafting Brings the Option of Dental Implants to More Patients

According to Mountain View dentist Donian Shen, DDS, missing teeth are not only a cosmetic concern, but also a condition that can lead to bone loss and functional problems in the long-term. She explains that one of the most popular and recommended treatments for missing teeth, dental implants, requires adequate bone structure to be effective. While many patients will have the necessary bone density, she says patients who desire dental implants and lack this feature may not be ideal candidates for the procedure. Bone grafting, Dr. Shen indicates, often can help individuals achieve sufficient bone density for dental implants.

Bone grafting is a surgical technique that is designed to rebuild the jawbone. Dr. Shen says that patients who lack adequate bone structure for implants can utilize bone grafts to reconstruct the jaw. She adds that bone grafts can come from many places, including the patient’s body, a donor, or an animal, depending on the needs and preferences of the individual.
