Sinus Lift Augmentation
If you have lost your upper back teeth, your sinuses have likely increased. To replace your lost teeth with new implants, a sinus lift augmentation or graft may be necessary to move your sinus cavity back to its original position and restore the missing bone caused by the enlarged sinus. This bone graft typically requires nine to twelve months to heal before the dental implants can be securely placed into the grafted bone.
Autogenous Bone Grafting
Sometimes, the areas where dental implants need to be placed may not have enough bone to support them securely. In such cases, transferring bone tissue from another part of your mouth may be necessary, grafting it onto the deficient area. Typically, the preferred sites for bone tissue are the chin or the back of the jaw, where the wisdom teeth were previously located.
Implant Site Development
It is not unusual for bone loss to occur around an infected tooth that requires removal due to infection. However, there is a solution in the form of bone grafting, which can be performed simultaneously during the tooth extraction process. This procedure can help prepare the area for future dental implant placement.
Computer Enhanced Treatment Planning
Our clinic uses advanced 3D software to assess your bone quality, quantity, and location, ensuring optimal placement of your dental implants. This technology enables us to collaborate seamlessly with your restorative dentist, guaranteeing the best possible outcome for your implant procedure.
After your dental implant procedure, keeping the treated area clean and preventing infections is crucial. Just like natural teeth, dental implants can also collect plaque and tartar. Whether you’ve replaced one tooth or several with implants, it’s necessary to have regular professional cleanings to maintain the health of your implants. The frequency of these cleanings will depend on your specific needs.
