Ridge Augmentation and Sinus Lifts
For patients who want to enjoy the benefits of dental implant placement but may not have enough supportive jawbone structure to receive them, Dr. Newton may be able to perform jawbone grafting to boost the bone’s strength. Ridge augmentation involves grafting bone to the lower dental ridge to add support before implant placement. A sinus lift involves lifting the sinus floor above the upper dental ridge to place additional bone structure in position to support an implant post.
If you’ve lost teeth to periodontal disease, then the disease may have eroded some of your jawbone structure, and periodontal maintenance will also be necessary to ensure the success of your dental implants. After a thorough examination, Dr. Newton will collaborate closely with you to design an appropriate dental implant placement plan, complete jawbone grafting and periodontal treatment plan, as necessary.
