Advanced Dental Implant Procedure – Carrollton, TX
Ensure Your New Smile Lasts
A dental implant is proven to last for several decades with the right foundation. To ensure your smile has everything it needs to last, you’ll require an initial consultation to ensure dental implants are right for you. The CT scan used to access your oral structures may show you don’t have enough bone in your jaw to support the posts, or your sinuses aren’t high enough. You’re not out of options. An advanced dental implant procedure can resolve the issues that are preventing you from replacing your missing teeth.
Dental implants have a 95% success rate, which is largely due to a process called osseointegration. Surgically inserting an implant post into your jawbone allows it to act as a new root. This stimulates your jaw to promote new bone growth. Over the next several weeks, your jawbone will fuse to the post.
Unfortunately, if you’ve lost density in your jaw, there won’t be enough bone to support the post when you perform everyday tasks, like chewing. Bone grafting enhances the thickness of your jaw using a surgical procedure.
A small piece of bone is taken from a donor or another location in your body and transferred to the treatment area. Your gum tissue is stitched closed, allowing the graft to integrate with your bone. You’ll spend the next several months healing to create the strong base your dental implant needs.
If you experience bone loss in the upper arch, there may not be enough bone by your maxillary sinuses to place the posts without them protruding into the cavities. A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation, adds bone to the back of the mouth near the upper premolars and molars.
Your gum tissue is opened to expose your jawbone to allow a small oval to be cut into it. Your sinus membrane is gently lifted upward, and a graft material is placed into the hole. Your gum tissue is sutured closed to allow the area to heal over the next several months.
