Our top-notch periodontist, Dr. John Russo can most likely provide you with a Siesta Key bone graft so that you will become a good candidate for getting dental implants.
Today bone grafting has become a commonly performed dental procedure. This is due in large part to the growing popularity of dental implants. Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. In order for a patient to be able to get dental implants, their jawbone must be thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant surgery. The jawbone must also be able to strongly hold the dental implant root so that it can act as an extremely stable base for the dental implant tooth. Many patients are told they are not good candidates for getting dental implants because their jawbone has become weakened. This commonly occurs once there is tooth loss because tooth loss will lead to atrophy of the jawbone. A jawbone will atrophy when there is a missing tooth root, and this can happen during the first year of tooth loss. At our periodontal practice, we are able to provide patients with a Siesta Key bone graft procedure. When this procedure is performed, the jawbone will be able to grow more bone material due to the addition of grafting materials. Once this treatment is completed, the patient will generally have a jawbone that is able to successfully hold a dental implant root. At our periodontal practice we are also able to provide our patients with dental implants which are precisely place to ensure that the new dental implant tooth will be comfortable and attractive, and in the exact right place.
