The most vital requirement for dental implants is the presence of adequate amount of bone. Many patients believe that they can’t receive a dental implant because they were once told that they don’t have enough bone. With modern technology in bone grafting techniques it is common to be able to place an implant in areas where there is minimal bone levels. There are new current methods of bone grafting to increase the height and width of bone.
