In order to be a good candidate for dental implants and the many advantages they have to offer, it’s necessary to have a strong jaw bone (for lower teeth) or sinus wall (for upper teeth). This is because the implant is placed into the sinus wall and then fuses to it. The sturdiness comes from this process and a sinus wall that is too thin is insufficient to meet the goal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on dental implants entirely. That’s because our Jericho dental implant surgeon, Dr. Warren Baine, can perform sinus augmentation surgery, the results of which will qualify you to have a dental implant.

Sinus augmentation surgery, also know as sinus lifts, takes bone tissue from elsewhere in your body and uses it to enhance your sinus wall. This makes it stronger and thus able to accept the implant. Naturally, there will be a waiting period while the new bone tissue spurs the growth of new and more dense bone in your sinus wall, but this delay is well worth it if you are determined to have a dental implant done by our Jericho dental implant surgeon to replace one of your upper teeth.

Dental implants have an impressive success rate of about 98%, so there is every reason to believe that having sinus augmentation surgery done is a good idea to facilitate the placement of an implant. They look and feel just like a natural tooth does. Furthermore, you will be able to eat, speak, brush, and floss normally, with complete confidence. No messy adhesives are needed to keep your dental implants in place. No clasps are required and there is no effect on your surrounding teeth either, unlike with bridges where the two teeth on either side have to drilled down and have a crown put on them to provide needed support for the bridge. The support and strength for a dental implant comes from its fusion with your jaw bone or sinus wall. That is why our Jericho dental implant surgeon offers sinus augmentation surgery; to allow you the opportunity to have a dental restoration that will serve you well for many years to come, possibly for life.

Most people qualify for getting dental implants because the requirements are not that difficult to meet. Dental implants are very popular and with good reason. They are a permanent, fixed dental restoration that look and feel very much like your natural teeth do. But if your jaw bone is not strong enough for the support post to be placed and then grow around, the solution is a bone graft and guided tissue regeneration done by our Brookville periodontist, Dr. Warren Baine.

The process of replacing your missing teeth with dental implants begins with a consultation at our office. An examination will determine that your gums are generally healthy enough to accept an implant. Once that is decided, the work can begin on a bone graft and guided tissue regeneration. Bone is harvested from another part of your body and is then transplanted to use in your jaw bone by our Brookville periodontist.

Over time, the transplanted bone grows new bone around it. This forms a stronger and thicker bone, which is exactly what is needed to make you a good candidate for your dental implant. It does requires some patience because it can take up to nine months for the bone to grow sufficiently. However, in many cases the wait is significantly shorter than that. Our Brookville periodontist will, of course, be keeping a close eye on the guided tissue regeneration and letting you know about how long he expects the process to take.

When the bone has grown to the level of strength and thickness that our Brookville periodontist has decided will be enough to work with, the work on your dental implant can then begin. Chances for a successful dental implant, which are typically as high as 98%, will be similar after your bone graft and guided tissue regeneration to what would be expected in anyone whose jaw bone was originally strong enough on its own.

Our Brookville periodontist is happy to offer this option so that many more patients can take advantage of dental implants and all they have to offer. Avoiding the challenges that are part of more traditional dental restorations is well worth the effort. Call us today and let us get started helping you to achieve that goal.
