After making the decision to get a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, you may be alarmed when your dentist tells that you need bone grafting before the implant can be installed. Bone grafting is a normal part of dental implants, and here are three things you should understand about this. It is done only when necessary Dentists will not perform bone grafting unless they absolutely have to. A dental implant is a prosthetic device placed inside the jawbone.
I grew up in a home with parents who did not insist on good dental hygiene. By the time I was old enough to know better, some damage had already been done. I had many cavities, crooked teeth, and some discoloration on my teeth. I knew it would not be easy to take my smile from where it was to where it is today, but I was determined to finally have nice teeth. I visited a dentist who was very nice and never judged me. We made a dental plan together. Spreading the procedures out over time made it much easier to afford them. I now have almost perfect teeth after all that hard work! I created this blog to help others who have dental problems that stem from bad childhood habits know there is hope! It is never too late to start seeing the dentist!
