Is Bone Grafting Required for a Mini Dental Implant?
Watch this video to learn about when bone grafting is necessary for successful implant placement.
If we extract the tooth and we put the implant in the same visit, we then put bone grafting material into the area that we extracted to allow the bone to heal and to grow around the implant, at the time that we extract the tooth.
If you come and the tooth has already been extracted and it’s been missing for a while, we do not do bone grafting procedures to add bone to make enough bone to put the mini implant in. The only time we do bone grafting procedures is when we take the tooth out and put the implant in the same visit. Otherwise, bone grafting is not required to place many dental implants.
