Considerable but needs thorough check up.
Welcome to HCM;
Yes bone grafting
is done to support a dental implant
but the treatment needs to be explained and here it goes :
A dental impant is placed in the thick alveolar bone ideally 10mm thickeness in height and 6mm in width. any deficiency or bone defect is common to have and the oral surgeon can plan to put a bone .
The most frequently used technique is guided bone graft augmentation where a defect is filled with either natural bone or allograft . During the healing phase, natural bone replaces the graft forming a new bony base for the implant.
The treament is safe and will be successful if you are not medically compromised with disorders like diabetes
i hope this information is satisfactory.
If you have further more queries to write back to me.
