Historically when teeth were extracted or loss due to injury, trauma or disease, the shrinking structure of the jaw bone resulted in simply inadequate room for an implant.
Fortunately today we can add & grow bone when needed. This allows us to prevent bone loss at the time of extraction, or add more bone where needed. Sinus bone can also be added in the upper jaw regions.
Bone grafting is also done in a minimally invasive manner and thus complications are minimized with higher then optimal standards to be safe, effective & successful. The grafted bone is eventually turned over and metabolized to eventually be the foundation of a future dental implant.
