Lack of Bone for Implants: the problem
How come I have a lack of bone?
If you need dental implants
A bone grafting procedure augments the bone volume, restoring the bone for implants to be placed into. If the lack of bone is minimal to moderate, then bone grafting and implant placement can sometimes be done at the same procedure for your convenience. When the bone grafting need is more extensive, separate procedures may be required. At Complete Implant and Sedation Dentistry, we can ensure your bone graft procedure is comfortable using sleep dentistry (or IV Sedation Dentistry).
If you are missing many or all of your teeth and are lacking bone for conventional implants, or are struggling with uncomfortable removable dentures, the graftless permanent solution of All On 4 Implants may be suitable for you. This is a means of replacing a full set of teeth on a foundation of usually four implants at strategic positions and angles, even in minimal jaw bone. In cases where there is absolutely no bone available in the upper jaw, zygomatic implants that use the cheek bones for anchorage can be considered, as an alternative to bone grafting.
