The Types of Dental Implants
Dental Implants in Edison
Dental implants grow into the jawbone beneath your gums. Due to their unique placement, implants require that patients have minimal bone atrophy. Atrophy is the degradation of the bone due to lack of stimulation. When a patient has significant bone atrophy, they may require a bone graft to rebuild the bone before placing dental implants. Additionally, patients should be in good general and dental health and able to undergo general anesthesia if necessary. Your dentist can help you determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants at an in-office consultation.
