San Jose, CA, patients ask, “Where can I receive a soft tissue graft near me?”
When a tooth is missing, dental patients have many decisions to make. Many patients know that replacing the missing tooth, or teeth, is beneficial to oral health. Without a tooth replacement, the gums and jawbone can become adversely affected. What many patients don’t realize is that without a tooth and tooth root to stimulate the jawbone, it can be resorbed by the body and begin to disintegrate.
Often, patients who have waited for some time to make a decision about replacement teeth will find that the jawbone is no longer able to support dentures without them slipping and becoming uncomfortable. However, they still have options for regaining a happy and confident smile. Our doctors at the Center for Implant Dentistry help San Jose area patients achieve a great smile with the use of dental implants.
For patients who have lost, or who simply never had enough bone tissue in the upper jaw area to support a dental implant, the sinus lift is a soft tissue graft where bone tissue is placed in the sinus cavity in order to add height to the upper jawbone. This leads to a more successful dental implant surgery. Furthermore, at the Center for Implant Dentistry, our team has the ability to perform the sinus lift and the implant surgery during the same appointment.
Many patients who have been told that dental implants are not an option because of a lack of upper jawbone density or have been advised to have a sinus lift surgery often ask, “is this a service that’s available near me?” To that, the experts at the Center for Implant Dentistry say, “yes” Our team practices the most advanced procedures using the most up-to-date technology to help patients achieve a happy smile and a healthy mouth.
