Gum Grafting for Southlake & Arlington Dental Patients
While there are several, varying types of grafts and methods of grafting, they all serve to make the tooth and surrounding gums stronger and more stable.
A gum graft is a minor procedure in which Dr. Doctor will reinforce weak gum tissues, and in some cases, replace missing gum tissues, to improve the appearance, function, stability and comfort of the teeth. The grafted tissue procedures that Dr. Doctor performs are explained in this web site.
Sinus Atrophy After Extraction
The maxillary sinuses are behind the cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. Some of the roots of the natural teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth.
Sinus Lift with Grafting
Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone. A sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants.
