You probably don’t want a bone graft. Do you really need one?
If you come to New Albany Implants, the answer to that question is usually no.
This matters because it can affect the time and the expense of getting new permanent teeth to replace the ones that you’ve lost. If you don’t need a bone graft, you can get your new teeth in less time and at a significantly lower cost.
It’s why our dentist, Dr. Ron Receveur, developed the One Day Smile Solution™ — and why you could be showing off your new smile sooner than you thought was possible!
To understand how we can do this, you should start by calling (812) 945-7645 to schedule a consultation at our office in New Albany, IN.
What Happens to Your Jaw
The idea is that this will make your jaw stronger so it can support dental implants.
But why is this an issue? What causes your jawbone to become smaller?
The short answer is losing your teeth. Your teeth — specifically the roots of your teeth — and your jaw have a mutually beneficial relationship.
A healthy jaw holds the roots of your teeth securely in place. This keeps your teeth stable and allows you to generate more than enough force to bite and chew the foods that you eat. This allows you to comfortably eat pretty much anything you want.
While eating, you are also doing something else. With every bite and chew, your roots are pushing into your jaw. In response to that pressure, your jaw creates new bone tissue.
As old bone is absorbed by your body, the new tissue is necessary to keep your jaw healthy and strong.
If you lose teeth, you no longer have roots to create that pressure. Without that pressure, your jaw will shrink. It just won’t be able to make new tissue to maintain itself.
A bone graft is a way to replace the tissue that’s been lost. For a long time, this was thought to be the only way to be sure that a jaw could support implants, which replace the roots of lost teeth.
It also meant patients had to undergo an extra procedure and wait for several months to heal before they could get implants to support their replacement teeth.
A Better Way
Dr. Ron has been placing dental implants for decades. He’s sought out the world’s leading experts in implantology to learn the best techniques for implant procedures. His experience and training allowed him able to develop his One Day Smile Solution.
Through this technique, you could avoid the need for a bone graft. That means you don’t have to wait for months before you get your implants. You also won’t have to spend months walking around without any teeth.
Instead, you can get a set of teeth on the same day that your implants are placed. Simply put, you will be able to start enjoying the benefits of your implants earlier, too.
Service You Can Trust
Dr. Ron places more than 500 implants every year. He has a success rate of better than 98 percent, and he offers something you won’t find many places: a lifetime warranty on implants.
