Before starting your implant procedure, your dentist will need to treat any oral health issues you may have, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or other infections. This often entails a combination of healthy everyday hygiene practices and dental clinic oral hygiene treatments.
Your dentist may bring up a bone graft using donor or synthetic tissue if your jaw lacks enough bone to support an implant. Given that bone repair is affected by some medical conditions, bone grafting may not be a choice for you. Also, you should be conscious of the price.
