Continue reading to learn more about the additional procedure options patients may need before getting treated with full mouth dental implants.
Why May I Need Bone Grafting Before My Full Arch Dental Implants Are Placed?
Bone grafting is a dental procedure aimed at adding bone graft material to a patient’s jaw in order to give them a solid foundation for their full mouth dental implant procedure. It is commonly performed when the jawbone lacks sufficient volume or density, due to factors such as tooth loss, trauma, gum disease, or atrophy over time.
During a bone grafting procedure, bone graft material is placed in the affected area, restoring the patients jawbone density and volume. Over time, the bone graft material fuses with the existing bone, promoting bone regeneration and providing a stronger foundation for full mouth dental implants. The healing process typically takes several months, during which the bone graft integrates with the patients existing jawbone.
Bone grafting restores a patient’s jawbone volume, improves their full mouth implant success rates, enhances their facial aesthetics, and supports long-term full mouth dental implant stability. The oral surgeon will evaluate each patient’s specific situation and recommend the appropriate bone grafting technique based on their needs.
Why May I Need Tooth Extractions Before My Full Arch Dental Implants Are Placed?
One common reason people need tooth extractions, is because they have severe tooth decay or damage that cannot be treated or saved. In such cases, tooth extractions are performed in order to prevent the spread of dental infections and maintain oral health. Tooth extractions are also performed when there is overcrowding in the mouth, especially before orthodontic treatments, to create space for the full arch dental implants.
A tooth extraction procedure begins with IV sedation being administered to the patient so that they have an anxiety-free and comfortable full mouth dental implant procedure experience. The oral surgeon then carefully loosens the tooth, using specialized tools, and gently removes it from the socket. After extraction, proper aftercare instructions are provided to the patient to promote efficient healing and minimize any discomfort.
