Want the maximum in tooth replacement? Dental implants have a remarkably high success rate — with procedures as much as 98% successful, by many estimates. They work by fusing together with your jawbone in the process known as osseointegration. If there’s not enough healthy bone structure present, though, the crucial process may never occur. In cases where the jaw is not strong enough to support dental implants, your dentist in Jacksonville may recommend a bone grafting procedure.
Bone grafting can help people who would otherwise be ineligible for dental implants enjoy all the benefits of this comprehensive tooth replacement option. It may add several months to the overall treatment for dental implants, but patients agree it’s worth the investment in time for a stable, secure tooth replacement.
