San Carlos, CA dentist describes the cost, benefits, and purpose of dental bone graft procedures
At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, Dr. Shivani Gupta and her team in San Carlos, CA understand that many patients love the idea of placing dental implants to replace missing teeth. Unfortunately, patients who do not have enough bone structure of the jaw are not considered good candidates for this procedure. Instead, the team may encourage patients to learn more about a bone graft procedure that can rebuild the bone of the jaw and prepare the patient for the placement of dental implants later on. Our provider can discuss with patients the purpose, cost, and benefits of bone grafting.
