Bone Grafting for Dental Implants Near Wilmington, NC

Dental implants need a sturdy anchor to stay in place during the regular stresses of chewing. However, there are factors such as periodontal disease and long-term tooth loss which can lead to the jaw bone becoming reduced or reabsorbed. This leaves the patient without proper bone density to support an implant.

The bone grafting procedure moves bone to the affected area, restoring thickness and density providing a stable anchor for the implant to be placed.

Schedule an appointment with Otero Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry to find out if a bone graft can help you. You can also contact our office at (910) 270-9344 to learn more about our available dental implant options which may be possible without the use of bone grafting.
