If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures may be dental implants. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth. They can also be used in conjunction with dentures to improve their retention.
Bone grafting is a procedure where synthetic bone is placed in an effort to replace lost natural bone or to prevent excessive bone loss.Often times these procedures are done at the time of a tooth extraction or implant placement.
