Missing teeth problems can effectively be addressed with the placement of dental implants. The different types of implants provide patients with the missing teeth solutions they need, especially when there are additional issues that need to be considered before the implants can be placed. Fin implants are recommended for those who have thin jaw bone ridges.
A thin jaw bone ridge may not provide enough support for the placement of dental implants. Bone grafting procedures may be done to augment the specific area, so it can provide the necessary support for the implants. Fin implants make it possible for a thin jaw bone ridge to support a dental implant (and the prosthetic tooth/teeth) without the need for a bone grafting procedure.
Ask your dentist about the possibility of using fin implants if you have an issue with thin jaw bone ridges. This type of implant may be what you need to address the problem of lost or missing teeth, without having to undergo a bone augmentation/grafting procedure.
