Simple Dental Surgery Prepares Your Upper Jaw for Implants

If you’re missing teeth, there is the potential that other people will notice the gap in your smile. A missing tooth is often most noticeable on the upper jaw. The gap is almost like a magnet that draws other people’s gaze right to it.

You don’t have to live with missing teeth on your upper jaw any longer. You may be discouraged if you’ve been told you have a weak jawbone that’s incapable of supporting implants. Fortunately, you can get a sinus lift, which is a bone graft for the upper jaw. This is what you can expect:

  • Dr. Zia will insert bone material where your jaw has deteriorated.
  • New bone cells will grow and build up your jaw.
  • This makes it healthy enough to support implants and new replacement teeth.

You’ll have many options for implants, including an All-on-4 procedure in which you get your implants and temporary replacement teeth in one day. If you’re interested in that option, be sure to ask us about it.
