What makes dental implants unique among other teeth restoration treatments is the way that they are integrated into your oral anatomy through a process called osseointegration. It is thanks to this process that your implant fixture is able to function as an artificial tooth root as well as hold the weight of your replacement teeth. Naturally, in order for this process to succeed, there are some standards that you will need to meet before Dr. K. Ashraf is able to provide this treatment for you. Should you not meet some of these requirements, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will not be able to move forward with dental implants. You may simply need a supplemental procedure such as bone grafting first.
