Occasionally, periodontal disease, wearing dentures for a long time, certain developmental defects, injury or trauma might lead to a bone defect in an area of the jaw.
Having these deformities can cause problems at the time of placing dental implants, and it can also lead to unaesthetic results, as well as implant restorations that are difficult to clean and maintain.
Bone grafting can increase the chances of an aesthetically pleasing and functional implant restoration. To correct the shape of the bone in the area with the defect and bring it closer to the ideal shape, different type of bone grafting techniques can be used. At LPID, Dr David Holmes, continues to achieve remarkably aesthetic, functional and long term results.
Depending on your individual needs, the bone will be augmented before or at the same time of the implant placement. Bone Grafting, also called Bone Augmentation or Guided Bone Regeneration, has been shown to greatly improve the appearance and increase the chances for successful dental implants that can last for years to come.
