As a part of procedure some of the patients assessed to be having inadequate bone health on initial assessment are subjected for bone volumetric studies using CT Scan. This scan gives an exact picture of your bone density and decision can be taken whether you will require a bone augmentation procedure.
A dental implant needs a healthy bone to be stable and functional. Sometimes due to prolonged edentulous period or chronic periodontal disease bone may not have sufficient thickness to be able to retain a dental implant.
Dr Shikha and her oral surgeon assess the requirement whether some bone augmentation procedure will be required or not.
