We support the long-term success of your implant-supported teeth with holistic bone grafting techniques
We at the International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, use a safe, highly cosmetic, incredibly durable biomaterial, Zirconia (zirconium oxide), as an alternative to metals such as titanium in the fabrication of dental implants. You can also expect this same focus on high-quality, healthy materials for other or related treatments.
Notably, suppose you require bone grafts prior to the placement of dental implants. In that case, you can trust that the techniques, products, and technologies recommended by our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Yolanda Cintron, are in the best interests of your smile and overall well-being.
The problem: Bone loss
Tooth loss is also accompanied by bone loss in the jaw. The supporting bone does not get the stimulation needed to stay strong. That stimulation comes from the functions of the teeth, such as chewing and grinding down food. When the teeth are gone, there is nothing to provide this vital function to keep the supporting bone healthy. A healthy jawbone is essential for tooth replacement with dental implants. So, if you have experienced bone loss (or “bone resorption”), our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cintron, may recommend grafting to build up the jaw prior to the placement of implants.
Before and After Images of Dental Bone & Tissue Grafting
The idea behind any grafting procedure is to take the tissue and relocate it to the deteriorated or recessed area. This procedure not only augments the lost tissue but also triggers a regenerative process. The International Center for Dental Excellence uses the latest, minimally-invasive techniques to ensure precise treatment outcomes and to deliver the most comfortable experience possible. Furthermore, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cintron, uses biocompatible materials for grafting that are associated with minimal recovery times and fast and natural healing.
Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cintron, is skilled in using PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factors). PRGF may be introduced with other donor materials to encourage rapid and predictable regeneration of both lost bone and soft tissues (like the gums). Materials like AlloDerm® can also be used to halt the destructive process of bone resorption and to protect bone grafts, extraction sockets, and tissues around the implants.
