Bone Grafting

Loss of the alveoler bone, the bone that holds the teeth has been a long standing problem in dentistry. When we lose our teeth, the alveoler bone starts to resorb.  In some people who have worn dentures for many years this is very obvious. It can become so bad that it is almost impossible to wear dentures. Fortunately because of implants we are now able place implants into the bone that is only 10-14 mm in height occasionally there may be insufficient bone.
