Will I Need a Bone Graft for My Dental Implant?

dental implant diagram | tooth replacement gasport nyA common question that we get in the office is about bone grafting and dental implants. The short answer is- we can answer that question after your initial consultation. Utilizing our advanced in-office imaging technology such as 3D Computer Tomography Dr. Kaplansky will determine if your bone requires augmentation via a graft to facilitate implant placement. Bone grafting may be performed prior to implant placement or in conjunction with implant placement.

Bone grafting is sometimes necessary to improve the results of a dental implant surgery. The bone that can be grafted into your tooth cavity will help to strengthen the area, and it gives your dental implant a more sturdy area to bond to once the implant is placed. Not everyone needs this procedure, and the only way to know for sure if you will need this treatment in conjunction with your implant is to consult with a dentist.
