No bone, no implants : foundation is the key
We told you implants are the most sought after dental treatment today. But to be a good candidate, you need a good foundation. What does it mean? We mean your jawbone. You must have enough bone material to get them. But even for those who don’t, modern dentistry has a solution: dental bone grafting.
