Dentists in the 95101 area provide sinus augmentation for preparation of dental implants
One of the key elements of a successful dental implant procedure is the amount of bone available for the implant placement. Patients who have lost teeth in the upper back jaw may have a more difficult time in ensuring successful placement of dental implants because of the poor bone quality in this area as well as the close proximity to the sinus. Patients who have lost bone in this area may not be a good candidate for simple dental implant placement. Instead, these patients may want to visit a dentist in the 95101 area who provides sinus augmentation.
Sinus augmentation, also known as a sinus lift, is a treatment that can help ensure a more successful placement of a dental implant by raising the floor of the sinus and building bone in the area for better stability and strength. A dentist can raise the sinus floor in several ways and make the area better suited for dental implants. Our dental team, which includes Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta, can discuss with patients the best technique, depending on their specific needs. Every patient is unique, and there is no “one size fits all” solution for every sinus augmentation procedure.
In many cases, sinus augmentation must be done well in advance of the placement of the dental implants. This is to help facilitate healing and to ensure the bone has grown and become strong enough to ensure successful implantation.
Undergoing procedures such as sinus augmentation can increase the chance for a successful placement of dental implants that can provide improved function and beauty of the smile for many years to come. Patients can work with the team at the Center for Implant Dentistry to learn about the ways in which they can achieve a more beautiful, fully functional smile for chewing, biting, and speaking. Patients can also speak to our team of professionals about the possibility of having sinus augmentation performed to ensure dental implants are best for their specific needs.
