How Dr. Kremer Prepares You for Implants
Without adequate oral health, the likelihood of dental implant failure is increased and more problems are probable to occur down the road. Dr. Kremer offers additional treatment to anyone who needs to terminate bacteria, infection, or decay which may be impeding the potential of getting dental implants.
During your consultation with Dr. Kremer, he will determine whether the condition of your smile requires preliminary treatment based off your exam. Supplementary procedures won’t only increase your chances of qualifying for dental implants, but they will also allow your treatment to be successful -– resulting in a long-lasting, healthy smile.
At Kremer Dental Care, we offer two of the most common supplemental treatments used to prepare smiles for dental implants: bone grafting and gum disease treatment. Learn about these two procedures that you may need to undergo before your implant surgery.
Bone grafting is used when a patient has experienced bone resorption or their jawbone has deteriorated as a result of missing teeth. They consist of donated bone tissue that is placed over the area lacking sufficient bone mass to reinforce the jawbone.
Over the course of recovery, the bone attaches to the grafted tissue, strengthening the overall structure of the jaw. As a result, this ensures that the bone can successfully support your new dental implants.
Gum Disease Treatment
Another common preliminary procedure we offer is gum disease treatment. Unfortunately, gum disease is a common dental health problem that affects thousands of Americans over the age of 30. In addition to seriously damaging the gums, periodontal disease is a leading cause of non-traumatic tooth loss.
In order to replace these missing teeth without risking future implant failure, Dr. Kremer will first treat your case of periodontal disease and restore any lost bone tissue before implementing dental implants.
Treatment options that are available for patients battling gum disease include:
- Soft tissue surgery
- Root planing
