Oral surgery may be required prior to dental implant placements. 

Oral surgery

If you have missing teeth for a while, loss of bone in your jaw is common. It’s the body’s normal response to tooth loss, infection, gum disease or other trauma.

For dental implants to work, there must be enough bone in the jaw, which is strong enough to hold and support the implant. If this is not the case, you may need some other treatment at your Wetherby dentist before your implant treatment can begin, such as bone augmentation, bone grafting or other oral surgery treatment.

At your initial consultation by your local Wetherby dentist, we will determine how much bone is available and the shape of the bone. This assessment is done through visual examination, palpation of the bone ridge and with advanced x-ray techniques.
