How can the bone be “grown back” for a dental implant?


Should you have lost bone from an infection
and you’re considering a dental implant, it’s quite common for us to be able to grow that
bone back and it’s a routinely performed procedure at our clinic. Most of the time that achieves
the outcome that you’re after and I’m after as well.
If we, in contrast, compare that to, say, someone with a Julie Roberts’ smile, a very
high lip line, and we’re talking about can we get the bone and gum back so that the 0.5mm
difference in the position of the gums is corrected? We’d need to have a one-on-one
conversation and work through with you the predictability of that being successful.
But by and large we can certainly grow the bone back and it’s routinely a procedure we
perform.
