Image Photo Description
free gingival graft, periodontal gum  surgery recession bone attachment loss cosmetic dentistry Free gingival graft gum surgery after three days. The upper front central incisor tooth exhibited a lot of gingival gum recession that bothered the patient cosmetically. 1) The gum graft is shown after being sutured in place. These black sutures will be removed in about ten days. 2) The palate of the same patient showing the donor site for the gum graft. A gingival graft typically involves removing a small amount of palatal gingiva and sewing it where it is needed.

bone grafts platelet-rich plasma, PRP, dental implants implant surgery sinus lift elevation thrombin Dental implant oral surgery with sinus elevation and bone graft pictures. A 64 year-old female presented with five very loose anterior maxillary teeth and missing all posterior maxillary teeth. She wanted a fixed teeth bridge. The patient had six dental implants placed in the mandible (lower jaw) with fixed caps about four years earlier. The panorex x-ray showed an atrophic maxilla with 4mm of bone, which required a bone graft and sinus lift for dental implants. The agreed treatment plan consisted of extractions of all anterior teeth, sinus lifts with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and simultaneous implant placement. Part 1 of 5.
platelet concentration freeze-dried bone, thrombin centrifuge centrifuged fibrin glue oral surgery Dental implant oral surgery with sinus elevation and bone graft how to pictures. 1) A Platelet Concentration Specialist obtained the patients' own blood (60 cc) and 2) centrifuged it to obtain 6-8 cc of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and 10 cc of platelet-poor plasma (fibrin glue). 3) The PRP was mixed with the patients' bone and freeze-dried bone, and then activated with thrombin. This mixture was then used as graft material for the sinus lift elevation in and around the implants. Part 2 of 5.
bone grafts platelet-rich plasma PRP dental implants implant oral surgery Schneiderian membrane Dental implant oral surgery with sinus elevation and bone graft how to pictures. 1) - 3) A sinus lift elevation was performed by opening a small "window" into the sinus without perforating the Schneiderian Membrane. The window was gently elevated along its superior fracture line and the membrane peeled off of the sinus floor, creating a new, more superior sinus floor. 4) The dental implants were carefully placed to make sure they were stable. Notice that the width of the alveolar ridge was inadequate for the dental implants necessitating the PRP graft. The most distal two implants can be seen extending vertically into the elevated sinus. This entire area was covered with the PRP graft. Part 3 of 5.

This entire area was covered with PRP graft. Part 4 of 5.
dental implant sinus elevation lift surgery, bone grafts, platelet-rich plasma, PRP Dental implant oral surgery with sinus elevation and bone graft how to pictures. 1) Palatal photo of the dental implant site showing the area of the sinus lift elevation. 2) - 3) The graft (PRP + patients' bone + freeze-dried bone) material was then placed in the sinus cavity and around the dental implants. The wound was then closed primarily and the bone graft was allowed to consolidate for 9 months. 4) Pattern of preparation in bone for sinus elevation. Part 5 of 5.

 

 Information about these dental photos

     In medicine and dentistry "left" and "right" are based upon the orientation of the patient's body and not how they appear in a photograph of a smile.  For example, a reference to the upper left teeth will actually appear to be on the right side when viewing a picture of the face and similarly an upper right tooth will appear to be on the left side.

     Many words in dentistry like oral and mouth have a similar meaning and are frequently used together to help our readers find specific words they best understand.  This is particularly important because a majority of our visitors are from countries where English is not their primary language.  Maxilla or maxillary refer to the upper jaw.  Mandible or mandibular refer to the lower jaw.

     There are many other similar word combinations used throughout this website because our pages are read by patients and dentists.  A few of the most common are discussed here.  Tooth decay, tooth cavity and dental caries all mean the same thing.  Tooth, teeth and dental are also frequently interchanged as in teeth veneers or dental veneer laminate.  Oral rehabilitation and dental reconstruction mean smile makeover.  The word for x-ray may be used with or without a hyphen (this is true for other words too) and can also be called a radiograph.
