Individuals experiencing severe bone loss can still qualify for dental implants, although the need for bone grafting procedures may not be necessary in some cases.
Before recommending dental implant solutions, a qualified oral surgeon will consider various factors such as the number of teeth requiring replacement, the cause of bone loss, and the location and extent of bone loss in the jaw. Many people experience bone loss beneath the gum line due to periodontal disease, which can have negative impacts on their health and overall quality of life.
Those with more severe bone loss may also experience oral health issues, which can further exacerbate other medical concerns. Difficulties with eating may cause malnutrition, leading to additional health complications.
In cases where individuals have dental problems, dental implants may be suggested as a solution by doctors. When patients have extensive jaw bone loss, it becomes difficult to embed traditional implants securely. Such patients are often told that they cannot receive implants.
However, there are alternative techniques available that make implants feasible, despite the shortage of bone in the jaw.
Zygomatic implants are one such option that can aid individuals who have suffered significant bone loss in restoring their quality of life to its previous state.
