For some patients, there may be specific conditions that can make placing dental implants a challenge. We use supplemental procedures to improve your oral health and maximize the success of dental implants. Learn more about our supplemental treatments and what we can do to prepare you for the implant process.
Two of the most commonly used procedures to prepare for dental implants are bone grafting and gum tissue augmentation. Both of these procedures add volume to places where healthy, dense tissue is necessary and assist patients in successfully preparing for their implant placement. Additionally, we use our Epic Laser to treat a number of other dental concerns so you can have optimal dental health in preparation for your implants.
Sometimes dental bridges can cause gums to recede, leaving sensitive areas of root tissue exposed. This can cause pain, an increased risk of infection, and tooth decay. However, tissue augmentation can make gingival tissue more resistant to gum recession. During gum tissue grafting, a small tissue sample is repurposed from the patient’s palate. Depending on the patient, this is done before or at the same time a dental implant is being placed. The resulting tissue graft preserves the necessary soft tissue and makes the gums less likely to recede after surgery.
When patients have missing teeth, the jawbone can slowly deteriorate over time. Your jaw needs constant stimulation to remain strong and give you the support you need. To help combat bone deterioration, we use bone grafting to prepare our patients for implants. This results in a stronger, more stable jawbone and greatly enhances your chances of success with the implant procedure.
We use our Epic Laser to fix a wide range of dental issues. Using focused light in combination with thermal energy, we provide a degree of precision never before possible. Using our state-of-the-art diode laser technology we can:
Every patient is different and requires a different treatment plan to ensure success. This is why we individualize every treatment plan to ensure the entire dental implant process is tailored to meet your specific needs.
Some patients have supplemental treatments done at the same time as implant placement. Others may require more extensive treatments to prepare for implants. Regardless of your current dental health, we are here to make your dental implants a success. Dr. Sayed and his talented team have the knowledge and experience to find the right treatment plan for you.
If you’re not sure if you’re ready for dental implants, you are not alone. We encourage you to take the first step and call our office for a consultation with Dr. Sayed. This appointment will allow us to examine your mouth, take x-rays, and discuss all of your treatment options. We understand that not all patients are immediately ready for treatment and thanks to bone and tissue grafting, many patients who were previously unable, can now take advantage of beautiful dental implants.
