How Implant Dentistry Can Prepare You for Dental Implants

Most people visit a dental office when an issue arises or there is something they do not feel is quite right with their teeth or oral health. However, a dental office is also a place to ensure that your oral and overall health stay in the optimal condition. 

When should you visit a dental office?

If there is an issue or dental emergency, someone should always visit a dental office as soon as possible. Otherwise, visits should be relatively few.

Bi-annual dental checkups

With people having hectic lives, most put off having their twice per-year dental checkups and cleanings. Using time constraints as an excuse for skipping these exams and cleanings can be one of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to the long-term health of their teeth and gums. 

During these exams and cleanings, there is more than just removing any excess plaque and cleaning the teeth. Implant dentistry is a term that is being used in the dental industry for dentists focused on types of different dental implants. These procedures and devices are used to help in restoring patients' teeth. When someone has lost a tooth or multiple teeth, regaining the look and feel of the teeth can take different processes and procedures, depending on their unique situation.

What if the jawbone is not strong enough for implants?

By having two options for dental implants that either do or do not use the jawbone, there are now more options for people with any oral health, jawbone or gum issues.

Luckily, there are now options and techniques that can be used to help in rebuilding and regenerating the bone in a person's jaw to aid in supporting dental implants.

Bone augmentation

This procedure is used in helping regenerate and regain the strength of someone's jawbone. This will aid in making a person eligible to get an implant procedure completed.

Sinus lift

When someone has lost some of the teeth in the upper-back portion of their mouth, a common issue occurs that most people do not realize: By not having these teeth, the sinuses can be impacted from not having the adequate amount of bone support.

By having a sinus augmentation completed, the bone in the sinuses is regained and restored to how it was before the tooth loss.

Ridge expansion

Some people learn that their jaw is not wide enough to support dental implants. With a ridge expansion procedure, this will get the jawbone to a place that has the strength and width to support dental implants.
