Sometimes our patients need supplemental treatment in preparation for their new smile. For some patients, it may be as simple as finding a solution for grinding teeth while others may need help with their jawbone being deficient or may have gum tissue that has receded. Dr. Richard Assing and Dr. Brenton Assing may recommend a regeneration procedure to ensure the success of dental implants.
Many patients may need a bone regeneration procedure to help revitalize their jawbone. We use bone grafting to provide the stability and structure needed for successful dental implants. The procedure itself may not be as invasive as you think. It entails applying bone granules to the depleted jawbone site—this will trigger the bone to grow in preparation for your restoration.
Depending on the condition of the jawbone, the grafting treatment could be done at the same time as the initial implant fixture. That said, in more severe cases, it may be necessary to use a larger graft that takes extra time to grow and heal before placing the first piece of the implant.
A soft tissue augmentation is similar to a bone graft, but instead of bone, the receded gum tissue is bonded with new tissue to help it heal. The reason this procedure is vital is to maximize the success of implants and to prevent complications like infection.
The process works by using a sample of tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth and applying it to the receded gum area. The new tissue bonds with your gum tissue and restores it in preparation of your dental implants.
Tooth loss can wreak havoc on your jawbone and makes getting the treatment you need difficult. The jawbone relies on teeth to stimulate it and keep it strong. When there are missing teeth, the jawbone weakens over time and loses the bone mass it needs to receive implants. We use these restoration techniques to strengthen your jaw and make your implants a success.
Since implants function like your natural teeth, your jawbone will become even stronger after you get implants and you will regain the chewing and biting power you need to eat all your favorite foods. To find out if you need any of these treatments, schedule a consultation with Drs. Richard and Brenton Assing. They have the technology and experience you need to help determine if you’re ready for implants, or if you need a supplemental treatment first.
