We are experienced in performing procedures that can render you an eligible candidate for treatment, such as a bone graft.
Bone grafts are an extremely useful procedure, helping patients with very little bone to have dental implants placed. By using either your own bone or a donor’s bone, we can build up sufficient healthy bone structure, which will become the substructure for your dental implants.
How does bone loss occur?
There are several reasons why you might have sustained bone loss, including:
How long is the recovery time after a bone graft?
After bone graft surgery, you should feel normal again within a week. Your body will take around 3-9 months to accept the new grafted bone.
Does Durham Dental Implant Suite take referrals for CBCT scans?
We are happy to take referrals for CBCT scans. We’re very pleased to have this fantastic technology at our disposal, allowing us to assess how much bone is present in the jaw. Once we have this information, we will be in a position to tell you if you require a bone graft or whether we are able to place dental implants right away.
