Fortunately, at Park Place Centre, Dr. Svoboda offers supplemental procedures that can help prepare you for dental implants while also improving your oral health. If you’re not sure if you’re a candidate for our dental implants, schedule a consultation with Dr. Svoboda.
Patients with dental bridges or removable dentures slowly lose gum tissue and strength in their jawbone over time. Many of them often desire dental implants but are unable to undergo treatment due to the poor condition of their oral health.
Fortunately, we offer two of the most popular supplemental procedures that best prepare our patients for dental implants — gum tissue augmentation and bone grafting. Both procedures help reconstruct the gums and jawbone, where healthy and dense tissues are needed in order to support the new restoration.
Gum grafts are needed when the tissue around your teeth recedes over time, thus exposing its roots. When this happens, there’s not enough tissue to support a dental implant.
Dr. Svoboda will first collect existing tissue from the roof of your mouth by making a small incision. Depending on the severity of your lost gum tissue, this can be done before or at the same time when we place your dental implant.
The gum tissue will be then placed in the designated area, adding the necessary support for the implant. The resulting tissue graft preserves the soft tissue and makes your gums less likely to recede after the implant surgery. After surgery, you’ll be able to return to your daily routine unless Dr. Svoboda gives you a sedative. In which case, you’ll need a driver to drive you home. Since gum tissue heals quickly, your new gum line will be ready for dental implants in just six weeks.
When patients live without teeth for a substantial amount of time, jaw bone deterioration will start to take place. A dental implant can’t attach itself to a low-density jawbone because it won’t be secure enough to hold it, causing excess pain and making the procedure overall unsuccessful.
If you lost a bit of your jawbone, Dr. Svoboda can use a tissue graft from a donated bone source to attach it to the area where the jaw is lacking proper density. The new attachment will help rebuild your jawbone and allow it to strongly support a dental implant. Your healing period will depend on the size, Dr. Svoboda will give you an estimate before coming in for your dental implant procedure.
