MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Howard Abrahams, who has served
Bone grafts take bone material from the patient or a donor source and place it into areas where bone loss has occurred. After this surgical procedure, the new bone will be allowed to integrate with the existing bone, forming a more stable area to place a dental implant. Patients who undergo a bone graft can expect this integration process to take roughly four to six months. Afterwards, they can be re-examined to see if they qualify for dental implants.
Without a bone graft, many patients with missing teeth cannot safely receive dental implants because their bone loss is too extensive. This limits the treatment solutions available and prevents them from investing in dental implants, the only long-term, fixed tooth replacement restoration available. When properly placed by a skilled dental professional and cared for as directed, dental implants can last 20 years or longer. Therefore, receiving a bone graft can be a practical solution.
In addition to recommending bone grafts for potential dental implant placement recipients, Dr. Abrahams and Dr. Frohlinger also perform bone grafts in Miami Beach, FL, for cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments including ridge augmentation and adding bone volume to save natural teeth from extractions.
Those interested in discovering if they are candidates for dental implants, or who require a bone graft, can contact Drs. Abrahams and Frohlinger's office at 305-921-0082.
