It is not uncommon for a tooth to be extracted due to infection or other damage. In many cases, the infection or damage may have caused bone loss in the area of the tooth. Similarly, if a tooth is extracted and not replaced shortly following extraction, the supporting bone tissue begins to resorb, or shrink. In either of these cases, implant site development is needed to prepare the area to receive an implant. In most cases, implant site development consists of a bone grafting procedure, such as a sinus lift or ridge augmentation, during which the supporting bone is supplemented to form a stable foundation for the implant and remaining natural teeth.
When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentist will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and mouth to determine if implant site developing is the right treatment for you. Your treatment will be carefully planned in order to provide you with the best possible long-term results for your smile and oral health.
