Is Your Jaw Bone Healthy Enough for Dental Implants?

Implants are the ideal method for replacing missing teeth. They are also the only solution that engages the bone, keeping it healthy. But implants a need a certain amount of bone to be successfully placed. Replacing teeth with implants soon after tooth loss offers the best chance for a healthy foundation. The longer the teeth stay unreplaced, the more the bone deteriorates, taking with it the ideal scenario for implant placement. Have you been told you are not a candidate for implants due to bone loss? Dr. Papp offers sinus lift and bone grafting services, which are common procedures that strengthen the foundation of your smile and prepare your bone for implant placement.

Sinus lifts create the space needed for upper implant placement

Replacing upper molar and premolar teeth present a challenge for some patients. Expansion of the nearby sinus cavity may shrink the space needed for implant placement. Bone deterioration or inadequate bone height causes an unlikely environment for implants. In such cases, Dr. Papp performs a sinus lift. Gentle elevation of the sinus floor and placement of bone creates the density needed to successfully support your implant.
