Making Smiles Implant Ready With Jawbone Grafting
Oral health declines when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with consuming solid foods. Even speaking clearly could be a problem. However, the major problem is the break down of density in the jaw. This weakens the jaw, and could even cause an older appearance. More importantly, this limits dental implant placement. Additional treatments could be necessary to strengthen the jaw in order to make tooth replacement possible! Fortunately, Doctors Network could help you schedule an appointment with a local Naukati Bay oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is in-network with Aetna and performs this care. In addition, we could also discuss our payment plans to make care affordable!
Ridge preservation is also known as ridge augmentation. Essentially this enables the dentist to preserve the ridge 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 such as freeze-dried bovine bone particles may be recommended too. We could also recommend synthetic materials. During oral surgery, these are applied to the areas of weakened structure in the lower jaw.
Once the area heals, one or more 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, allowing long-lasting tooth replacement. Our team can connect you to a dentist or oral surgeon in Naukati Bay, AK who offers ridge augmentation, and also let you know about our dental discount plan to make sure your treatment fits your budget!
