Need Dental Implants? Different Kinds Of Bone Grafts You Could Receive
When a person ages or has certain habits, like smoking, his or her jaw bone can become weak and brittle. Before someone can receive dental implants, his or her jawbone has to be strong enough to support them. Thankfully, if you don't have strong bones, you can develop them with bone grafting. What does a bone graft procedure entail? Unlike other surgeries which require general anesthesia, many bone grafts in the mouth can be placed by your dentist while you're under local anesthesia.
