Sinus Lift Augmentation
After the loss of upper back teeth, your sinus cavities may enlarge in size. Before implants can be inserted to replace lost teeth in that area, a sinus lift augmentation or graft may be necessary. This procedure relocates the sinus cavity to its original position and replaces the bone that has been lost as a result of the enlarged sinus.
Implant Site Development
When a tooth needs to be removed due to infection, it is not uncommon to have bone loss around the infected tooth. In these cases, various types of bone grafting can be done at the same time the tooth is removed to preserve or enhance the existing bone. This procedure helps regenerate the missing bone and facilitates the placement of a dental implant at a later date.
Computer Enhanced Treatment Planning
We have special 3D software that allows us to evaluate your bone quality, bone quantity, and bone location for the best possible placement of your dental implants. This also allows us to work closely and efficiently with your restorative dentist to ensure an ideal result for your dental implants.
Once your dental implant restoration is completed, it is vital to keep the area clean and free of infection. Dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar just as teeth can.
Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, professional cleanings and maintenance will be necessary to keep your implants healthy. The time interval for these professional maintenance appointments will be determined by your individual needs.
