Dental implant posts require enough bone structure to bond with your jawbone. We offer bone grafting as a supplemental procedure if you’ve lost bone structure but still want to receive dental implants.
The bone grafting process uses bone cells from another part of your body to stimulate bone growth in your jaw. Dr. Locke will bind your healthy cells to the weakened area of your jawbone, promoting new cell growth. Bone grafting allows you to rebuild a strong bone structure to support dental implant restorations.
If the bone isn’t dense enough, Dr. Locke might recommend a bone graft. Learn more by scheduling your consultation at our Pineville office.
