Sinus augmentation

Sinus Augmentation - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

Many people who need implants do not have enough bone support to undergo the procedure. With a sinus augmentation, your Newmarket dentist can increase the upper jaw’s bone volume.

Most of the time, the dentist cannot place dental implants because of bone loss in the jaw. Several factors contribute to bone loss in patients:

  • Gum disease 
  • Teeth falling out in the upper jaw
  • Bone absorption after tooth loss

 

The procedure starts when your dentist cuts the gum tissue. Following the removal of the tissue, the bone becomes exposed. He then uses the bone graft to fill a small hole in the bone. Lastly, he stitches up the incision. The healing process usually takes 4-12 months. For your dentist to place the dental implants, your jawbone should have healed completely. Your dentist in Newmarket will advise you when they will put the dental implants. 

After the sinus augmentation procedure, people can feel discomfort and even swelling. There is also bleeding in your nose and mouth, but these side effects are typical and not severe. To avoid infection and relieve the pain, the dentist may give your pain medicine, antibiotics, and an antibacterial mouthwash. Schedule an appointment today with your Newmarket dentist and let your mouth feel healthier than ever before.
