You may need to receive a bone graft prior to having your implants surgically placed in your jawbone. Over time, missing teeth can cause your supporting bone tissue to deteriorate, making it necessary to perform a bone grafting procedure to ensure that your implant will have a stable foundation. There are several types of bone grafting, including ridge augmentation and sinus lifts, and we can recommend which type of bone graft will be best based on your individual needs.
