At our Farmington Hills dental office, we strive to give you the dental treatment you need no matter what your current situation. Our team of dental professionals is highly capable of handling complex cases in which patients need extra care to help them become a candidate for a dental procedure, get the treatment they need on a budget, or simply relax in the dental chair.
Dental Implant Candidacy
When it comes to tooth replacement, our Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari will do everything possible to help you stop suffering from tooth loss. Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for some restorative dentistry procedures such as dental implants or a dental bridge. Dental implants require a healthy amount of jawbone for the restoration to successfully implant into the jaw.
Since one of the devastating side effects of tooth loss is jawbone deterioration, many patients who have waited too long for tooth replacement may not have the adequate jawbone mass to support a dental implant. In other cases, gum disease, infection, or injury have caused some jawbone shrinkage that hurt a patient’s chances for successful implantation.
Bone Grafting from Experienced Farmington Hills Oral Surgeon
Our Farmington Hills dental office has oral surgeon, Dr. Fadia Abdouni on our team for this reason. For patients who are not initially a candidate for dental restoration because of significant jawbone deterioration, we offer bone grafting. This oral surgery will build back your jawbone mass, reversing the effects of bone shrinkage and strengthening your jaw. As a candidate for Board Certification in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Abdouni is highly experienced and gentle in her work. At Comfort Dental Spa you can rest assured that your bone grafting procedure will be made as comfortable as possible with sedation methods and compassionate dental care.
