During your second consultation for a single dental implant, we will carry out a routine CT scan to confirm the depth and dentistry of your jaw bone tissue. If we discover there is not enough bone to support an implant, we will discuss the bone grafting procedure with you.
At New Life Teeth we can offer all types of grafting material options, which include your own bone, donor bone, animal and man-made products. We also use a modern method developed by a company called Kometa bio, which uses your own teeth as graft material, because they have very similar properties to your own bone. Additionally, your own blood is used to improve the healing stage and reduce the risk of infection using a technique called A-PRF.
The healing period is typically around 4 months.
Once the bone is totally integrated in your jaw bone tissue, we can proceed with the dental implant surgery.
