A few fun facts.... Happy Tuesday!! 😃🎉
*Humans form two sets of teeth over the course of a lifetime, with baby teeth being replaced by adult teeth between the ages of 6 and 12.
*An average human being has around 32 teeth. This includes four wisdom teeth, eight incisors, four canines, twelve molars and eight premolars.
*When you see a hippopotamus opening its mouth, it seems as though they have only four teeth! But they actually have 40 pearly whites!
*Dogs rarely get cavities because their saliva has an extremely high pH, which prevents demineralization.
*An elephant’s molars can weigh up to 10 lbs. WOW!
*The teeth of the pocket gopher grow up to 15 inches a year!
*The blue whale is the largest mammal on earth, but it dines exclusively on tiny shrimp because it has no teeth.
*Armadillos, common in the southwest, have 104 teeth.
*Snails can have more than 25,000 teeth, which are located on the tongue!
*Dolphins only get one set of teeth to last a lifetime!
What is a Sinus Lift?
The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. These sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.
The key to a successful and long-lasting dental implant is the quality and quantity of jaw bone to which the implant will be attached. If bone loss has occurred due to injury or periodontal disease, a sinus augmentation can raise the sinus floor and allow for new bone formation. A sinus lift is one of the most common bone grafting procedures for patients with bone loss in the upper jaw. The procedure seeks to grow bone in the floor of the maxillary sinus above the bony ridge of the gum line that anchors the teeth in the upper jaw. This enables dental implants to be placed and secured in the new bone growth.
Am I a Candidate for a Sinus Lift Procedure?
A sinus lift may be necessary if you:
~are missing more than one tooth in the back of your jaw
~are missing a significant amount of bone in the back of your jaw
~are missing teeth due to a birth defect or condition
~are missing most of the maxillary teeth and require support for dental implants
Give us a call today to schedule your sinus lift consultation! 😁🦷
