Preparing Your Periodontal Health for Implant Placement

Before beginning your implant procedures, one or more of the following services may be required:

Tooth Extraction
Removing hopeless or non-restorable teeth is often the first step in preparing sites for implant placement.
Bone Grafting
Dr. Garbacea’s advanced expertise and education in bone grafting are critical when it comes to rebuilding bone tissue lost to gum disease, tooth loss or other factors. She uses Piezosurgery® for these procedures, allowing for superior precision and maximum preservation of surrounding tissues.
Ridge Augmentation
Increasing bone volume in areas of tooth loss within your arch prepares for future implant placement and helps restore contour to your facial profile.
Ridge Preservation
Adding bone tissue to the socket immediately following tooth extraction preserves the site for replacement with an implant.
Sinus Lift
Replacing teeth in the upper molar and premolar regions may first require Dr. Garbacea to augment the nearby sinus cavity and surrounding bone, accommodating for stable implant integration.
