When the patient has bone deficiencies the doctor can use bone (the patients, or synthetic) to graft the areas of need in order to create a more substantial and solid surface to place Implants at a later date.
There are four types of bone in the human face and the length of treatment for placing and restoring implants depends on which type of bone the implant is placed in, Implants need to integrate with the surrounding bone before the treatment can be completed.
Type I bone is comparable to oak wood, which is very hard and dense. 5 months integration
Type II bone is comparable to pine wood, which isn't as hard as type I. This type of bone usually takes 4 months to integrate with an implant.
Type III bone is like balsa wood, which isn't as dense as type II. Since the density isn't as great as type II, it takes more time to "fill in" and integrate with an implant. 6 months
Type IV bone is comparable to styrofoam, which is the least dense of all of the bone
It is very important to remember that the correct procedures that are applied and time invested will be creating the best possible environment for the successful placement of your Dental Implants.
