Due to the great popularity of dental implants, bone grafting has become a very common procedure at our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC. Our top-notch oral surgeon, Dr. Marc B. Hertz, provides bone grafting surgery to allow many people to get dental implants, who otherwise could not. A Sheepshead Bay bone graft will make their jawbone thick enough and healthy enough to properly hold dental implants.
Many people are turned down for dental implants because their jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to provide a good environment for a new dental implant. The titanium dental implant root needs to be able to function as an extremely secure base for the new dental implant tooth; it must be able to strongly fuse to the jawbone. However, if the patient’s jawbone is not healthy, this tight fusion will not be able to occur. Many patients who come to see us for a Sheepshead Bay bone graft are doing so, so that they will be able to ultimately receive dental implants. At our practice, we also provide implant placement for our patients. Once the dental implants are properly placed in the patient’s jawbone, they will return to their regular restorative dentist to get the top porcelain crown created and permanently attached. The bone grafting surgery is necessary for some patients in order to supplement the bone mass of their jawbone. This will allow the dental implant roots to anchor firmly into the jawbone. The bone graft will not only replace missing bone, but it will also help your body to regenerate its own jawbone. The new bone growth will form a bridge between your existing bone and the graft material, strengthening the jawbone overall. A stronger and fuller jawbone will also help to restore your appearance, and give your face a more youthful look.
