As we age, many of us experience bone loss in the jaw. Most of the time, it occurs without us realising it, until a tooth becomes loose and subsequently falls out. There are many reasons why this happens, but one of the main causes is inflamed gums, or periodontitis, which is why good oral hygiene is so important throughout every stage of our lives.
Unfortunately, once a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to degrade further and many practitioners are unable to then place dental implants. This is because the implant itself – the ‘screw’ section of the restoration – wouldn’t have enough bone structure around it to integrate with and hold it in place. On top of that, the implant could also be visible above the gum, which is, of course, not an ideal aesthetic situation.
The bone loss solution
While this may be a problem for some practitioners, here at Dentaprime F3T Dental Clinic in Stratford, London, we have the solution. We are pleased to offer bone regeneration treatment to patients in this situation, in either small or large areas depending on individual requirements.
We use a product called BIO-OSS for bone regeneration treatment, which is a far simpler and safer procedure than transplanting bone from elsewhere in your body and allows us to limit problems like infection.
Dental implant treatment that you can trust
In all areas of our clinic, we are committed to using the best technology and products available on the professional dental market, all of which give us the confidence in the exceptional service we are able to provide. These products, along with the high skill level of our dentists, mean that our patients are able to place their complete trust in our bone generation treatment, if they need it.
Bone regeneration is part of many of our treatments, so patients can feel reassured that the Dentaprime F3T dentists are extremely competent in this area. Having the ability to carry out this service is exciting for us as a dedicated implant centre because it means we are able to give more people the power of a healthy, happy smile through firmly placed implants that will stand the test of time.
