When people have a full arch of missing teeth, they should restore their smile with All-On-X dental implants. However, when people have had teeth for a while, they will lose jawbone density. In order to have a successful All-On-X procedure, a strong jawbone foundation is necessary. As such, before getting treated with All-On-X dental implants in Houston, TX, those with jawbone density loss should first have a bone grafting procedure.
Are Bone Grafting Procedures Necessary All-On-X Dental Implant Treatments?
When people have had missing teeth for a long period of time, they can experience jawbone density loss. If jawbone loss is left untreated for too long, the jawbone can begin to thin and weaken, eventually leading to remaining teeth shifting and loosening, losing lip and cheek support, and having jaw joint problems.
Without a strong and stable jawbone, people will not be able to replace their missing teeth with advanced tooth replacement options like All-On-X dental implants. In order for patients to have a strong and sturdy foundation for their All-On-X dental implants, they will first need to be treated with a bone grafting procedure. Bone grafting procedures restore volume and density to the areas of the jawbone that need it.
How Does A Bone Grafting Procedure Restore Jawbone Density So All-On-X Dental Implants Can Be Placed?
During a bone grafting procedure, after sedation dentistry has been administered, the skilled doctor will place dental bone graft material in the areas of the jawbone that have resorbed. Once the bone graft material is sutured into place, and it has properly healed, the patient will have enough jawbone volume to support their All-On-X dental implants.
The strategically placed dental implant posts in this restorative procedure act like natural tooth roots, keeping the patients jawbone stimulated so that it is kept strong and healthy. Even when people have jawbone loss in the areas of their jawbone where they have missing teeth, this should not prevent them from restoring their smile with All-On-X dental implants.
With state-of-the-art bone grafting procedures, a knowledgeable doctor can restore patients’ jawbone density so they can improve the look and function of their smile with All-On-X dental implants.
