How to Get Denture Implants Even If You Suffer From Bone Loss

Would you like to replace your missing teeth with denture implants, but have been told that you have inadequate bone density? Here’s how you can still achieve the stable, natural-looking smile you desire.

Today, patients who suffer from tooth loss have access to a number of tooth replacement options, from traditional dentures to flexible partials and implant-supported dentures. Denture implants are becoming more and more popular, because they provide numerous benefits including:

  • A more natural fit, feel, and function

I Don’t Have Enough Bone Density For Denture Implants - Now What?

Many patients who want to restore their smiles with denture implants have been told that they have inadequate bone density, which may prevent them for achieving the stable and beautiful smile they’ve been dreaming of.

Luckily, advancements in implant dentistry now means that patients with bone loss can still enjoy the permanent tooth replacement results possible with dental implants.

This can be achieved in two ways:

1. Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is an advanced dental technique that is needed when a patient doesn’t have enough healthy and natural jawbone required to support dental implants. This loss in density can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Injury or trauma
  • Tooth loss
  • Development defects

What does a bone grafting process involve?

A bone graft is when a piece of bone from another part of your body or jaw is removed and transplanted into the jawbone. However, today, advanced options include taking the bone from an animal source or cadaver.

2. All-On-4-Implants

If you are suffering from some bone loss, then an all-on-4-implant solution could be the right one for you. All-on-4-implants are designed to support a whole arch of teeth using only 4 implants. This can be used for either your upper or lower jaw.

Some of the benefits of All-on-4 Implants compared to traditional implants include:

  • Faster treatment time
  • No need for a bone graft
  • Same durability and support of traditional implants, but with a less invasive surgery
  • Replacement teeth can be added the same day as the surgery
  • Lower treatment costs

Is the All-in-4-Implant Treatment Right For Me?

This solution is typically recommended for patients who need to replace the majority of their teeth. In addition, it is ideal for individuals who have low bone volume but cannot have a bone graft due to certain health conditions, such as osteoporosis.
