Common Oral Surgeries to Aid in Dental Implant Placement

We provide a variety of oral surgeries that are essential to the success of full-mouth dental implants and your overall oral health. Whether it be the repair of a broken tooth, a tooth removal, sinus lift surgery, or the restoration of an entire smile, these common oral surgeries provide a safe and efficient solution. We offer a wide array of treatments to ensure that your smile is not only beautiful but also healthy. These surgeries include:

bone grafting

Bone Grafting

Dental bone grafts are a surgical procedure that involves taking a piece of healthy bone and transferring it to an area where the jawbone has weakened or deteriorated due to illness or injury. This is a very effective and safe way to build a solid foundation for dental implants, which can replace missing teeth and restore a patient’s smile. When a tooth is missing, the jawbone beneath the site of the tooth can start to recede or deteriorate over time. Dental bone grafts allow the implant to have a strong, stable base to be placed into, making the entire procedure successful and long-lasting.

sinus lift

Sinus Lifts

Sinus Lifts surgery, also known as sinus augmentation, is a procedure that helps create additional space in the upper jaw by elevating the sinus floor. This type of surgery helps prepare the area for dental implant placement in cases where not enough jawbone exists for the implants. A sinus lift involves an incision being made in the gums and then lifted, exposing the underlying bone. Next, a window is opened to gain access to the sinus. An instrument is then used to push back the membrane covering the sinus and lift it. This makes it possible to fill the area with a bone graft to promote new bone growth in the space. After a few months, the new bone is strong enough to allow our doctors to place a dental implant.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are a procedure in which our oral surgeon removes a damaged or decayed tooth from the mouth. This tooth removal may be done in order to save a tooth from further decay or to make room for a dental implant. Extracting the tooth allows our doctors to effectively clean and prepare the site for an implant, which is an artificial tooth that is anchored in the jawbone for stability. The implant provides a secure, stable base for replacement teeth such as bridges or crowns. After the tooth is removed, the dentist can place a dental implant in its place, restoring the person’s smile and ability to chew comfortably.
