The key to good Implant and Restorative treatment is maintaining the surrounding bone and gum tissue. As part of our treatments, we will often augment or modify these tissues to optimise the cosmetic or biological result.
Using a Bone grafting technique we can preserve a volume of bone to allow the placement of Implants.
In the past bone was often harvested from a patient’s hip or shin and transplanted to the required site. This meant two surgical sites and a higher morbidity rate. Now new techniques can provide a less invasive option.
Healing period is usually 4-6 months.
