This video explains how a dental implant is used as a tooth replacement and a brief overview of the process. If you are visiting our office for a dental implant procedure, this will require a consultation visit as well as additional appointments to allow us to plan your surgery specifically for you.
If you have been experiencing chronic dental pain, broken down teeth, failing dental work or periodontal disease and you have been told that your teeth may need to be removed, you may be a candidate for full arch rehabilitation of the upper, lower or both jaws.
This treatment is an alternative to traditional dentures to replace your teeth. The procedure consists of removal of the failing teeth, preparing the bone, placement of dental implants and attaching a fixed set of temporary teeth. After 3-4 months of healing, the implants are verified for stability and a final set of teeth will be made by your dentist. This procedure is performed all at one time while you are under anesthesia. Our surgeons specialize in this treatment alternative and will work with your dentist and the laboratory as a team to restore your smile, chewing and confidence.
If you have been told that there is not enough bone for implants by another provider, our surgeons offer implant treatment for patients with severe bone loss. To further discuss your treatment options, please schedule a consultation with our doctors.
Bone grafting is also known as guided bone regeneration. Please click the learn more button for more information.
Bone grafting is also known as guided bone regeneration. There are certain situations where there is not enough bone to place a dental implant. For instance, someone did not develop sufficient bone, a tooth was extracted and a bone graft was not placed, or a dental implant was not placed in a timely fashion. Your surgeon has the ability to “grow” bone by performing a bone grafting procedure prior to dental implant placement to replace missing teeth, occasionally both procedures can be performed simultaneously. There are several different approaches to perform this procedure. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be developed that will work best for you.
Sinus augmentation or “sinus lift” is a procedure performed to gain bone in the top jaw to allow for future implant placement. Bone can be grown in the sinus with this procedure. In some cases, the dental implant can be placed at the same time as the sinus augmentation.
Sinus augmentation or “sinus lift” is a procedure performed to gain bone in the top jaw to allow for future implant placement. Bone can be grown in the sinus with this procedure. In some cases, the dental implant can be placed at the same time as the sinus augmentation. If not, the implant can be placed 3-6 months after the initial surgery. Our surgeons will discuss this procedure and customize your treatment plan depending on the consult findings.
When a permanent (adult) tooth fails to erupt, we have the ability to work with your orthodontist to have the tooth brought into the proper position.
This procedure will be coordinated after enough clearance and space is produced for the tooth to come into position. Overlying soft tissue and bone is removed and if needed, a bracket with a chain is attached to the unerupted tooth. This allows the orthodontist to pull the tooth into the correct place.
You may be referred to our office to evaluate a lesion in your mouth. This video explains why it is important to have these lesions evaluated, and potentially treated, by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
