Strengthening Smiles With Jawbone Grafting
A lot happens to our smile when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with eating your favorite foods. Even talking clearly could be a problem. However, the major problem is the loss of structure in the jaw. This weakens the jaw, and could even cause a prematurely aged appearance. More importantly, this limits dental implant placement. Additional treatments could be necessary to strengthen the jaw in order to make dental implant placement possible! Fortunately, Doctors Network could link you to a good Mountain Village dentist who is in-network with 1199 and offers jawbone grafting. In addition, we could also discuss our payment plans to make dental care affordable!
Ridge preservation is also referred to as ridge augmentation. Essentially this enables the dentist to restore the lost structure in your mandible. Your dentist could employ new tissue from multiple sources. We could take tissue from the back of the jaw or the hip. Donor materials may be recommended too. We could also recommend synthetic materials. In a surgical procedure, these are applied to the areas of weakened structure in the mandible.
Once the area heals, biocompatible dental implants could be placed. The body will accept them as natural roots. As a result, they help prevent any further breakdown in the jaw, preserving your smile. Our team can connect you to a dentist in Mountain Village, AK who offers this surgical procedure, and also let you know about our membership plan to make sure your care fits your budget!
