Sufficient bone mass is critical for implant surgery success. Dentists have become proficient at restoring or regenerating bone in tooth sockets. This allows and supports implant placements.
Digital imaging also allows dentists to measure exact bone deficiency. Once the deficiency is determined from the image, the dentist can decide how much bone material will be needed for a successful implant.
There is strong evidence that using bone additives and growth factors achieve improved outcomes and have longer-term success for dental implant treatment (compared to synthetic bone, donor bone or harvesting outside the jaw).
