Dental Implants

Is Everyone a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants require sufficient bone for the fusion between tooth and implant to take place. If there is insufficient bone to support an implant, a bone graft procedure may be performed to build up available jaw bone. Sinus augmentation may be necessary for successful implantation in the mandible (upper jaw bone). Dr. Schaffer will determine candidacy to ensure a successful implant procedure.
