Periodontal surgery NYC: Socket Grafting in the Posterior Maxilla Reduces the Need for Sinus Augmentation

  1. 1. Periodontal surgery NYC: Socket Grafting in the Posterior Maxilla Reduces the Need for Sinus AugmentationPeriodontal Surgery NYC: Socket Grafting and Sinus AugmentationIn the aid of periodontal surgery NYC, this research endeavored to explore whether socketgrafting – the filling of a tooth socket with soft tissue, demineralized and freeze-dried boneparticles and irradiated bone – reduces the need for sinus augmentation for the purpose ofdental implants. Sinus augmentation is a surgical procedure whereby the soft tissue and sinusmembrane are carefully peeled away from the upper jaw bone at the back of the mouth to revealthe maxilla. Bone grafting periodontal surgery is then performed on the area to provide supportfor dental implants. Patients can take anywhere between three to six months to properly heal.The reason for this periodontal surgery in NYC is that patients that do not present sufficient bonedensity in the posterior of the maxilla generally need to undergo sinus augmentation before theywill be considered viable candidates for dental implants. Without robust enough bone tissueto support the titanium screw upon which the artificial tooth crown is affixed, the implant willbecome easily dislodged and the periodontal surgery deemed a failure. Dental implants are oneof the best possible solutions to single/multiple missing teeth and so, in the event of a displacedtooth, periodontal surgery becomes unavoidable should the patient wish to restore aesthetics andfunctionality to their mouth.Periodontal Surgery NYC: Research MethodologyThis periodontal surgery NYC study compared the three variables in relation to augmented andnon-augmented alveolar sockets: ● Dimensional alterations, ● The need for sinus floor elevation, and ● The histologic wound healing (‘histology’ being the organization and microscopic structure of soft tissue).Sixteen human extraction sockets were either grafted or left untreated and the followingevaluations made: ● Alveolar ridge alterations were evaluated at baseline (the time of the periodontal surgery NYC), three and six months post-extraction; ● Histologic analyses were conducted at three, six, and nine months. ● Implant placement with or without sinus floor augmentation was decided at 6 months.Periodontal Surgery NYC: Research Findings and ConclusionsThe most significant finding of this research endeavor was that three of eight patients (37.5%)in the control group underwent sinus floor augmentation compared to one of six (16.7%) inthe experimental group. What this essentially means, is that the alveolar ridge augmentationprocedure presented here increases the possibility of periodontal surgery NYC success for dentalimplants without the need for a sinus augmentation procedure.
