Do I need bone graft to get dental implants? – Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry
Many of our patients in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry wonder if they need a bone graft before getting dental implants. Having the right type of bone is very important to decide if you will need bone grafting or not. A properly osseointegrated titanium implant allows to recover the functionality of the mouth and prevents more serious health problems to the patient like further bone loss and teeth shifting. Osseo Integration means that the bone and tissue around the implant has finally bonded thoroughly and the dental implant is ready to be rehabilitated with an abutment and a porcelain crown on top.
Like all processes, bone grafting presents complexities derived from multiple variables. Each patient has individual characteristics that differentiate him from the rest. The Dental Implant Specialist in charge of of your treatment will evaluate all these conditions and elaborate the best solution that allows the patient a postoperative without discomfort. There are many types of materials used for bone grafts, specially sterile bovine bone.
The types of dental implants to be used are important too. You need to know there are several types of dental implants, like wide, regular, narrow and mini implants and each one of these have different requirements for the type of bone. Most of the time, we can use All-on-4 and Mini Implants without problem, but other implants might certainly need to bone graft. Our dentists in Cancun can give you a preliminary opinion if you submit a panoramic x-ray of your mouth. They will explain to you all their suggestions and let you know the alternatives you could also do even if dental implants might not be an option.
