Our Dental Implant Treatment
Minimally invasive Dental Implant placement
Over the decades, Dr. Flowers has successfully performed several thousand implant procedures. And now, with recent breakthroughs in implant technology, Dr. Charles Flowers can offer dental implants to more people than ever before.
Our Dental Implants Procedure
Dr. Flowers begins by performing a very thorough visual oral examination and review of any preexisting health issues.
Then he will take low-dose digital X-rays and closely examine all the data about your jawbone and its anatomy as provided by the X-rays and the oral exam. With this information he can create an ideal treatment plan, giving you various possible options.
First, the implant site is prepared. Then, the implant is placed and the tissue is sutured.
Some dental implant procedures can be completed with just local anesthesia. For longer procedures, you have the option of oral sedation.
When there is insufficient bone in which to place the dental implant, the amount of bone needs to be augmented with bone grafting so that an implant can be successfully placed. Usually the bone grafting can be done on the same visit as the placement of the implant.
When teeth are missing from your upper jaw, the pressure in the sinus can cause the sinus to expand and the jawbone to shrink. This leaves insufficient bone to place your implant. A sinus lift allows Dr. Flowers to place bone graft materials that will stimulate adequate bone growth for your implants to be placed.
