Is a bonegraft necessary for dental implants?
The most common question Dr. Christopher Walker gets is “is a bonegraft necessary?” Hear what his surgical assistant, Sohka, has to say about bonegrafting and dental implants.
“One of the most common questions we get is ‘is a bonegraft necessary?” And the answer is always “YES!” The success of your dental implant depends upon it. Bonegrafting ensures that the ridge of your jaw that holds in the implant will stay maintained. Without a bonegraft, there is insufficient bone for the dental implant to hold on to.”
