Get Ready for Implant Placement
An ideal candidate for dental implants will have a strong, dense jawbone and healthy gums. If you suffer from jawbone deterioration or gum disease, you may be told that you don’t qualify for implants.
Thankfully, Dr. Kovacevic can prepare you for surgery with a supplemental procedure. These treatments will reverse the damage to your gums and jawbone, allowing you to restore your smile with implants.
Soft Tissue Augmentation
Soft tissue augmentation works in a similar way to bone grafting, except it’s meant to treat your gums instead of your jaw. For patients with receding gums, we’ll graft donor tissue to the affected areas and restore your oral health.
Your gums will absorb the new tissue as they heal, creating strong support for dental implants.
