Bone Grafting in Letterkenny

Every time you lose a tooth to decay, or trauma, the bone where the root of the tooth once was begins to disappear. If the tooth, or teeth, have been missing for some time, the bone volume in the jaw can be less than ideal for placing an implant, so we will need to add some bone. This can be done in two ways. If the defect is small we can use bone derivatives, which are either bovine or synthetic.

If the problem is more advanced, we may need to refer you to the hospital to have some of your own bone taken from your hip and transplanted into your mouth. On other occasions, we can take bone from sites inside the mouth and transplant it in our surgery using special techniques and equipment. We will discuss the efficacy with you before beginning any treatment and decide which is the most suitable for you. After an appropriate healing period, we can then place the titanium implants and carry out the normal prosthetic treatment.

“Finally! I’ve been a client here for the past 3 years getting a lot of much-needed work done. Damien & Leona make a great team and take great care to make you as comfortable as possible. Today, I got my new crowns and have been beaming a smile since. I honestly did not realise how much of a difference it was going to make to have such precise work done in comparison with what was there before. Good dental care is essential, but if you need any kind of work done I couldn’t recommend this place enough. If you’re wary or anxious about dental appointments, this is the place for you. Thanks a million, folks!”

“I can’t say enough about 03 Dental Letterkenny Damian and Leona. I feel like shouting from the roof tops for all those that have a phobia like me. I have been to other dentists but by far Letterkenny 03 are the most companionate, caring and professional not to mention the fantastic job they did on my teeth, I had conscious sedation and remember nothing! Very happy to have found my future dentist.”
