FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ, January 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Did you know your jawbone could resorb if you don't replace a missing tooth? You might be thinking-what does that even mean? It means that your jawbone, which supports your facial soft tissue and gives your face structure, will deteriorate-near the area of tooth loss-if there is nothing to stimulate it. This will leave you with less bone, potentially complicating your impending dental implant procedure.
"A good implant candidate has good hygiene habits, healthy gums, and most importantly, enough bone to anchor the implant. If your jawbone resorbed where your natural tooth used to be, you might think you can't receive a dental implant. That's not true. A dental implant procedure is still a possibility," says Dr. Michael A. Costello, surgeon in Franklin Lakes and Maywood, NJ.
In Franklin Lakes and Maywood, dental implant treatment is still a possibility, but you most likely need a bone graft to recreate some of the jawbone that was unfortunately lost. Why is it important for there to be enough jawbone near the affected area? For an implant procedure to be completely successful, there needs to be enough support surrounding the implant. The answer to your problem-bone graft. Maywood and Franklin Lakes residents can find this procedure available at Costello Oral Surgery Associates.
Dr. Costello has practiced Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery for over a decade, and offers minor and major bone grafting. A routine bone grafting procedure is usually minor, and treatment can take place in the surgeon's office with the use of a local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Through a small incision or the extraction site itself, Dr. Costello transfers bone-grafting material to the sight of the diminished jawbone. The grafting material can be a natural (from another part of your body) or synthetic (made of powder, granules, putty or even gel). At the sight, a waiting period for bone regeneration is generally 3-4 months for minor and up to 9 months for Sinus Lifts.
