For People With Severe Mouth Bone Loss, There Is Hope
A crucial aspect of all implant successes is the accessibility of sufficient bone to secure implants and sustain osseointegration. Osseointegration is where the implant fuses with the bone of the jaw. Years ago, those who suffered from extensive mouth bone loss often had to deal with surgical bone grafting or may even be deemed unfit for dental implants, which meant their only option was ill-fitting dental plates.
Today, however, regardless of extensive mouth or jaw bone loss, people in need of dental implants will find the latest technologies and methods at their disposal at the Advanced Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants. Among these are bone grafting and regeneration. But in the case of severe mouth bone loss, the Zygomatic procedure may be the best option.
