Bone Grafting for Dental Implants in Modesto, CA
BONE GRAFTING FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime but only if they are supported by a solid structure. Patients getting dental implants need to have a certain amount of bone available to accommodate the implant. If you have lost bone tissue, Dr. Morita may recommend a bone graft before you undergo the full dental implant procedure so that we are working with a stable foundation. We offer sedation dentistry to make your procedure that much more comfortable if needed.
If you dream about having the perfect smile and are a candidate for dental implants or restoration procedures, you should work with a periodontist experienced in grafting techniques. Dr. Morita performs the following procedures:
- Bone Grafting
- Sinus Lift
- Ridge Augmentation
- Ridge Preservation
Dr. Morita uses the piezosurgery technique to selectively cut and reshape bone tissue with ultrasound technology. This is a minimally-invasive procedure and can be especially effective for patients undergoing a bone graft. He may also use plasma rich growth factors (PRGF) for faster healing and guided tissue regeneration to ensure optimal results.
