Are Dental Implants Possible With Severe Bone Loss?

smiling person resting on couchFor those considering dental implants, you may have heard of the term “severe bone loss” and are wondering if it applies to you.

Severe bone loss can occur in any area of your mouth, but often occurs in the jaw due to long-term periodontal disease or trauma. In order for a successful dental implant placement, there needs to be enough healthy, strong bone material in the jaw area to securely hold the implant. If a patient has severe bone loss, they may not be an ideal candidate for dental implants depending on the amount of bone available.

However, that doesn’t mean hope is lost! With some careful planning and a thorough evaluation by our team, you can find out if dental implants are still a possibility.

The Implant Process

During your initial consultation, we will examine your jaw to determine the amount of bone present and decide whether or not any additional procedures such as bone grafting may be necessary.

For those looking into dental implants, it is important to understand that they are a long-term solution to replace missing teeth. They come with a wide range of benefits from improved aesthetics, better chewing and speaking ability, and a secure fit that won’t slip or shift like dentures occasionally do. However, for those with severe bone loss, the process may take longer than usual as additional steps are necessary to ensure that the implant is properly secured in place.

If you think dental implants may be an option for you, the best thing to do is to book a visit with our team and discuss if they are the right choice. With proper care and maintenance, you can look forward to many years of comfort and confidence with your new smile. No matter what your dental situation may be, don’t let severe bone loss stand in the way of restoring your beautiful smile!
