Advanced Dental Implant Procedures – Glenpool, OK

Build a Strong Foundation for Your New Smile

With the right foundation, a dental implant can provide you with a lifetime of healthy smiles. Some patients who are otherwise great candidates for this treatment have insufficient jawbone mass, particularly if they’ve been living without teeth for some time. If this sounds like you, you might simply need an advanced dental implant procedure in Glenpool before Dr. Mohanna can place your new teeth.

Bone Grafting

The reason why dental implants are more than 95% successful is due to a process known as osseointegration. After the implant post has been surgically inserted into your jawbone, it acts as your new tooth root. It stimulates new bone growth. Over the next few months, the post essentially becomes one with your jawbone.

Unfortunately, if your jawbone has deteriorated after tooth loss, it won’t be able to accommodate dental implants. Fortunately, bone grafting in Glenpool can surgically enhance the density of your jaw.

A small section of bone is taken from either a donor or another part of your body is transferred to the area of your jawbone where the implants will be placed. Once the gums are stitched closed, you’ll spend a few months healing as the graft strengthens your jaw.

Sinus Lifts

If you’ve lost bone mass in your upper arch, there might not be enough bone in which to place dental implants without them puncturing your sinus cavities. A sinus lift in Glenpool, also known as a sinus augmentation, increases the bone density toward the back of the mouth.

Your gum tissue is opened up to access the jawbone. A small hole is cut into it, and the sinus membrane is gently elevated. A graft material is placed into the hole and your gums are sutured closed, allowing you to begin the healing process.
