What happens if you don’t have enough bones for dental implants?
If you don’t have enough jaw bone to support an implant, you can build up the bone through grafting. This procedure involves taking your own bone from other areas of the body where it isn’t needed and grafting it to your jaw bone to build enough volume to support an implant.
Who is not suitable for dental implants?
People who take certain medications, such as steroids or drugs that suppress the immune system may not be suitable candidates, either. And people with certain habits, such as people who severely grind or clench their teeth may put too much pressure on the implants, causing long term damage.

What if you can’t have dental implants?
Going as little as 12 months with a missing tooth (including extractions) causes the bone to atrophy: that is, bone density and height decrease and deteriorate almost immediately. A year into that process means that instead of a single dental implant, you’ll likely face a bone graft as well.
