When implanting an artificial tooth, our dentist will determine if the bone in your jaw is dense and thick enough to accept and keep hold of an implant. In cases where the jawbone is not dense or thick enough, Dr. Kent Copeland may consider bone grafting, a procedure where bone from another part of your body or from a donor is implanted into your jaw to give the tooth implant a better foundation to rest on. If you have any questions about bone grafting in Prosser, Washington, give Chardonnay Dental a call at 509-781-6600.
