In some cases, patients who have already experienced bone loss may not be good candidates for dental implant placement unless they receive bone grafting from an experienced periodontist, such as Drs. Canal and Calem.
MOORESTOWN, NJ (PRWEB) April 30, 2018
New patients in search of an experienced periodontist who offers ridge and sinus augmentations and bone grafting in Moorestown, NJ, can now receive these services from Drs. Mario J. Canal and Ben Calem, with or without a referral. Those interested in receiving dental implants, but have insufficient bone mass to support implant posts, may be eligible for a ridge or sinus augmentation and/or bone grafting procedures to improve bone levels.
After tooth loss, it is normal for the jaw bone directly beneath the empty tooth socket to start degrading. Even if the tooth is replaced with a bridge, the jaw bone beneath the treated site is still not provided with regular stimulation and is susceptible to degradation. Dental implants, on the other hand, are inserted directly into the jaw bone where they can provide constant stimulation and encourage healthy bone density levels. In some cases, patients who have already experienced bone loss may not be good candidates for dental implant placement unless they receive bone grafting from an experienced periodontist, such as Drs. Canal and Calem.
A ridge augmentation may be recommended if bone loss has led to a change in the contour of the gums and bone or if the area needs to be prepared for the placement of dental implants. The procedure promotes bone regeneration and rebuilds the structure of the gum tissue and bone so it can successfully hold a new dental implant. This procedure is performed by adding bone to the affected area as needed and allowing the site to heal. Similarly, bone grafting procedures are performed by removing bone from one part of the body (or from a donor) and grafting it into the area where it is needed. A sinus lift increases the amount of bone in the sinus area by gently lifting the sinus cavity and inserting bone grafting material. These procedures are frequently done to prepare the jaw bone for dental implant placement and ensure the long-term success of dental implants.
As chief resident at the Rutgers University School of Dentistry, Dr. Calem’s research focused on ridge preservation procedures to prepare patients for dental implant placement. Both Dr. Canal and Calem are dedicated to learning and applying modern bone grafting techniques for their patients. Drs. Canal and Calem encourage those who want to see a skilled periodontist for bone grafting in Moorestown, NJ, to schedule a consultation.
