What If I Don’t Have Enough Bone For a Conventional Implant?

In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, explains what options we can offer to patients who have suffered from bone resorption.

It’s not uncommon for patients to be concerned about bone quantity when considering dental implants, particularly if they’ve been advised previously that they lack sufficient bone for implant placement or might require a bone graft.

With mini dental implants, the requirement for bone volume is less than that of conventional implants, which could make them a suitable option for patients with reduced bone density. During the free consultation, we utilize a CT scan to gain a comprehensive understanding of your bone structure.

This scan is crucial as it allows us to assess the amount of available bone and to plan the implant placement while avoiding vital anatomical structures.

If you’ve been told you don’t have enough bone for conventional dental implants, or are considering your options for dental restoration, please reach out to us. We’ll provide you with a thorough evaluation, a detailed treatment plan, and discuss how mini dental implants could restore your dental health effectively.
