Patients with insufficient natural, healthy bone to support dental implants could be ideal candidates for bone augmentation, which is the process of rebuilding the bone. The goal is to provide a sound structure where implants can be placed and secured in the alveolar bone structure.
For dental implants to take hold successfully, your jaw needs to have healthy bone to support them and hold them securely into the jawbone. If you’ve previously experienced oral conditions, such as gum or periodontal disease, injury or trauma to your face and jaw, the quality of your bone may be compromised. Patients who have had teeth extracted and left the spaces empty or have worn dentures for many years could also find their bone density level insufficient to support dental implants, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
