MINNEAPOLIS, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Highly credentialed periodontist Dr. Andres
Jaw bone loss can occur for a variety of reasons, one being tooth loss. Statistics from the American College of Prosthodontics indicate that more than 120 million adults living in the United States have already lost at least one tooth. After tooth loss, the natural tooth root is no longer stimulating healthy bone growth and the jaw bone begins to degrade. Periodontists often recommend replacing teeth or entire arches with permanent dental implants rather than dentures or bridges, so patients can avoid complications such as bone reabsorption, gingivitis and advanced periodontal disease.
During bone grafting treatment, a periodontist adds bone to areas of bone recession in the jaw bone. Over time, the bone graft becomes part of the original bone and strengthens the general area. Without bone grafting, patients in need of dental implants might not qualify for implants, limiting their functional and aesthetic oral healthcare goals.
As a periodontist who trained at the Mayo Clinic and who is well-respected in his field, Dr. Sanchez regularly offers bone grafting to Minneapolis, MN and surrounding areas in the form of sinus lifts, ridge augmentations and other bone grafting procedures. To ensure the treatment is as minimally invasive as possible, he uses an advanced technique called Piezosurgery. Using advanced technology, he is able to avoid harming unnecessary tissue whenever possible, decreasing healing times and increasing patient comfort. Additionally, Dr. Sanchez utilizes regenerative growth proteins to speed up recovery so patients can return to their lives with the healthy smile they desire.
