Making Smiles Implant Ready With Jawbone Grafting
Major problems arise when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with consuming solid foods. Even clear speech 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 leaves the smile too weak for implants. Additional treatments could be necessary to strengthen the jaw in order to make dental implant placement possible! Fortunately, Doctors Network could help you book an online appointment with a local Kipnuk oral surgeon who is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and provides jawbone grafting. In addition, we could also discuss our payment plans to make dental care affordable!
Bone grafting is also referred to as ridge augmentation. Essentially this enables the dentist to preserve the ridge in your mandible. Your dentist could use various sources. Tissue could be taken from the back of the jaw or the hip. Donor materials such as 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 mandible.
Once the area heals, biocompatible dental implants could be placed. The body will see them as natural structures. As a result, they help prevent any further breakdown in the jaw, preserving your smile. Our team can connect you to a dentist or oral surgeon in Kipnuk, AK who performs ridge augmentation and dental implants, and also let you know about our dental discount plan to make sure your treatment fits in your budget!
