Preparatory Procedures Create the Right Environment for Dental Implant Success
Replacing teeth soon after tooth loss is important for your smile. Leaving teeth unreplaced actually encourages the deterioration of bone tissue. In fact, patients lose 40 to 60 percent of bone volume within the first three years after a tooth extraction!* Bone loss is a major concern for oral health and appearance, but it is especially challenging when it comes to replacing teeth with dental implants. Without sufficient bone in your jaw, your dental implants will likely fail. However, even if you have suffered bone loss in the jaw, you can still enjoy the life-changing benefits of implants with bone grafting and sinus lift solutions. Our team at Runion Dental Group has the advanced skills and expertise needed to create the right environment for lasting implant results!
A Sinus Lift Allows for Proper Implant Placement in the Upper Molar Area
Natural tooth roots in the upper premolar and molar region sit very close to the sinus cavity. Losing these teeth affects your oral health in several ways. Bone loss or a large sinus cavity can make implant placement nearly impossible in this area. But a sinus lift gently raises the sinus cavity and adds additional bone tissue to create the bone levels needed for your new implant.
Bone Grafting Provides the Support Implants Need for Healthy, Lasting Function
Bone grafting is a procedure used to rebuild lost bone in the jaw. We gather tissue samples from your own body or a donor source and place the graft material into areas of bone loss. The new tissue integrates with existing bone to form the support and volume necessary to encourage successful implant placement. We utilize state-of-the-art PIEZOSURGERY® for bone grafting, a minimally invasive technique proven to improve patient comfort and treat bone without affecting soft tissues.
