Can I Get Implants If My Bone Quality is Low?

Ideally, a good candidate will be:

  • In good general and oral health.
  • Have healthy gums and jawbone.
  • Above 18 years of age.

But, bone grafting can be performed for those with low bone quality. However, it is not essentially an alternative for all. Your dentist will draw the best treatment plan for you.
Bone grafting before Dental Implant
Bone grafting: Artificial bone substitute is placed four to eight months before the implant procedure. It allows the graft to heal and increase the bone quality.

Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants can also be classified based on their structure:

1. One-piece implants: These are implants that have an inbuilt abutment. The abutment attaches the dental cap to the implant.

2. Two-piece implants: The abutment and implant come in a pair. The abutment has to be attached to the implant and is a separate component.

Dental Implant Procedure

Step 1

Under anesthesia, a titanium implant is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The healing process called Osteointegration takes 3 months for the lower jaw and 4-6 months for the upper jaw.

Step 2

After it has healed, a second surgical procedure is required to uncover the implant, remove the cover screw, and place an abutment and crown on the implant.Same Day Dental Implant

Post-Implant Precaution and Care

Here are some tips for care immediately after your dental surgery:

  • Eat soft, easy-to-chew food for a week.
  • Rinse with water after each meal to cleanse the surgical wound.
  • Do not drink hot liquids for 24 hours following surgery.
  • Drink ice water for the first 24 hours.
  • Use a new (soft) toothbrush after surgery.
