Dental implants rely on a certain level of bone in the jaw to carry out the job for which they are designed. Insufficient bone fails to provide the stability necessary to maintain implant position and withstand biting forces. When bone loss has occurred, or disease renders natural teeth hopeless, Dr. Marko Kamel offers the procedures you need to prepare your mouth for placement. Such preparatory services are one of several factors that go into determining total cost, and the course of action right for your smile.
When evaluating your candidacy for dental implants, your individual needs and oral health condition dictate whether Dr. Kamel recommends one or more of the following periodontal procedures:
The removal of hopeless teeth affected by advanced periodontal disease or decay may be the first step towards reestablishing a healthy smile and bite.
Rebuild bone support to a healthy level by adding bone tissue sourced from your own body or donor samples.
Tooth loss causes deterioration of the bony arch supporting the teeth and facial profile. Ridge augmentation allows Dr. Kamel to restore volume and structure to the arch through strategic placement of bone tissue.
Dr. Kamel can preserve a new extraction site by adding bone directly into the exposed tooth socket, enabling future placement.
To replace missing upper premolar or molar teeth, Dr. Kamel may need to add tissue in or around the sinus cavity to create better bone volume for support.
