What are the benefits of bone grafting from a North Hollywood area dentist?
When patients in the North Hollywood, California area are dealing with tooth loss, they often experience a secondary problem that can negatively impact their oral health and wellness – bone loss. When jawbone is lost, it can result in the loss of other teeth. Bone loss can also make it unlikely that the patient is a candidate for dental implants. This is when the team at A-Dental Center may suggest the benefits of bone grafting.
Bone grafting from a quality dentist such as Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat restores the natural bone structure. The procedure builds up the bone and makes a proper foundation for the placement of dental implants. Dental implants require bone structure for successful implantation. Without bone present, the dental implant has nothing to attach to and may fail.
Placing dental implants is one of the primary benefits of bone grafting. Another is to avoid the change in facial contours that can occur when patients have lost a number of teeth. Even patients with dentures will notice a change in the way their smile looks due to the loss of bone. Bone loss can have detrimental effects on the smile which is why it is important to seek the assistance of a quality dentist to rebuild the bone and repair the smile’s function and aesthetics.
Bone grafting is completed right in the dental office. It requires the dentist to access the bone underneath the gum tissue to place materials that stimulate bone growth. When a dental implant is placed, the process of osseointegration begins during which the bone fuses with the restoration and gives it the stability it needs to function properly.
Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat and his dedicated team of professionals at A-Dental Center encourage patients to take the time to learn about the importance of the jawbone and how it keeps the smile healthy and properly functioning.
