Understanding Bone Grafting
Living without multiple teeth for a prolonged time can lead to bone loss, which causes your facial features to shift out of proper alignment. Thanks to modern advancement in bone grafting (adding bone) – and Dr. Oshidar’s high level of expertise with the procedure – it is now possible to grow new bone in the diminished areas of the jaw, allowing for dental implants to be placed and restoring your smile to its former beauty and functionality!
After the initial exam and assessment of the area where the dental implant will be placed, our skilled team will perform a CT scan to determine the amount of remaining jaw bone that is viable. Next, new bone tissue is added to the area, along with a man-made membrane to help avoid infection and stimulate new bone growth.
To allow for restoration using new implants, our trained staff can remove any natural teeth surgically. Dr. Oshidar, and his highly skilled team, ensure that this process is handled in the most comfortable and least invasive manner possible. We offer relaxing sedation, if needed, to keep you at ease. It is sometimes possible to place an implant immediately after the extraction, so we can maximize the time you have with your new strong, permanent teeth.
The removal of upper natural teeth, can lead to the thinning of the bone wall in that area, which makes it difficult to support a dental implant. The team at our Bayville office can correct this issue with a sinus graft, creating the best base for a new implant. The technique employed by Dr. Oshidar raises the sinus membrane, allowing additional tissue to be inserted into the upper jaw’s roof (sinus floor). Once this procedure is completed and healed, then our doctor can place the implant.
Over 75% of the US population suffers from gum (periodontal) disease. Certain cases cause the gradual recession of gum tissue from your teeth. A process known as tissue augmentation can assist with such issues, and revive your overall smile to its natural, attractive state. Tissue augmentation helps restore the gum line as well as reduces the possibility of bone loss in the future.
