Periodontal disease can cause your jawbone to become too weak to support a dental implant. In cases like this, Dr. Burt will often recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote healthy bone growth and thicken your jawbone. Over time, your jawbone will naturally regenerate and become strong enough to support a dental implant.
Gum grafting is a common gum disease treatment procedure performed at South Shore Dentistry. This surgical procedure is commonly used to treat gum recession.
Once the gum grafting surgery is completed, the soft tissue surrounding your teeth can begin to naturally regenerate, restoring a healthier smile. Benefits of gum graft surgery can include reduced sensitivity, an improved smile appearance and overall improvement of your oral health.
If you're getting dental implants in your upper jaw, you may need a sinus lift surgical procedure first. During this procedure, our oral surgery team will add new bone between your jaw and maxillary sinuses. In order to make room for this bone, your sinus membrane is gently moved upward. A successful sinus lift will help create healthy bone mass to support your dental implants.
