Bone Grafting

If you’ve learned that your lower jawbone isn’t strong enough to hold up an implant, there’s no need to worry. Dr. Amos can perform a bone grafting procedure, which will give your jawbone the additional support it needs. He will start by making an incision in the gum line to expose the appropriate area. Placing bone minerals into the necessary space, he will stitch up the gums and send you home to heal.

Over the course of 3 to 6 months, you can expect these minerals to encourage your body to rebuild and strengthen your jawbone, so when the time comes for implant placement, there will be no problems with positioning and successfully restoring your smile.

Sinus Lifts

Just like the lower jaw can pose a problem if too weak, so can the upper jaw. The maxillary sinuses are located immediately behind your cheeks and above your upper teeth. When a tooth is removed, the bone is left weak, creating a problem for individuals looking to replace a tooth. By having a sinus lift, your dentist in The Colony can help the bone grow into the floor of your sinuses by filling the area with bone minerals. The same amount of healing time will be necessary in order to achieve proper results.

Once your jaw is examined and there are no other problems, you can expect to be cleared for dental implant placement.
