Maintain your facial appearance with a bone grafting procedure. Bone loss occurs immediately after a tooth goes missing, and leaving bone to deteriorate for a significant amount of time can cause facial deformities or issues with the bite. Dr. Turpin may use autogenous, allograft, or xenograft techniques to replace lost bone.
We can restore the natural contours of your smile or your jaw after bone and tooth loss with ridge augmentation and preservation procedures. Patients left with an indentation in the gums after tooth loss or other bone-related issues can benefit most from a ridge augmentation or ridge preservation procedure. We can return natural contour to the gums or preserve bone tissue after tooth loss with a minimally invasive procedure.
A sinus augmentation procedure may be necessary if there is not enough bone available to support dental implants in the upper molar jaw area. If the bone in this area starts to shrink, the sinuses end up expanding to occupy the empty space. The sinus augmentation procedure involves adding bone in the sinus area to add density and encourage natural bone growth in the space.
If you are in the early to moderate stages of periodontal disease, you may be a good candidate for this procedure, which works to reduce periodontal pocket depths for healthier tissues. Scaling and root planing is a nonsurgical periodontal treatment that involves removing plaque and calculus deposits from beneath the gum line with specialized instruments. Any root surface irregularities are smoothed to encourage the reattachment of the gum tissue to the teeth.
