Gum and/or jawbone reconstruction

Gum and/or jawbone reconstruction

Gum and/or jawbone reconstruction (required in some cases only)

This step is necessary only when a lack of bone or gum tissue poses an obstacle to implant surgery.

In such a case, the surgeon must perform a gingival or bone graft in order to restore their adequate level allowing the placement of dental implants. The patient must wait for a complete healing of jaws and gums before undergoing the other stages of the treatment. This can take a period of a few weeks to several months.
