Why Bone Density Plays a Role in Your Implant Surgery

Posted .

Jaw bone density is different from patient to patient. It is graded from D1 which is like Oak wood to D4 which is like Styrofoam. Different bone densities require different preparations, different implant designs, different waiting periods before connecting a tooth to the implant, different temporary designs and progressive loading techniques, and different tooth designs to manage forces in softer bone. Some of these factors require additional appointments, chair time, and costs to do things correctly with the best outcome.
