BONE GRAFT & SINUS LIFT
BONE GRAFTING: Creating a solid base for the Implant.
If your jawbone isn’t thick enough or is too soft, you may need Bone Grafting before you can have a Dental Implant surgery. The powerful chewing action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if the bone can’t support the Implant, there are high chances of the procedure failing.
We can use your natural bone or a synthetic bone graft that can provide the structure for new bone growth. It may take several months for the transplanted bone to grow enough new bone to support a Dental Implant. In some cases, you may need only minor Bone Grafting, which can be done at the same time as the Implant procedure.
Sinus Lift: Loss of bone.
The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental Implants due to insufficient bone quantity, poor quality and proximity to the sinus. Loss of bone in the area due to tooth loss or periodontal disease may leave minimal bone to place the Implants.
A Sinus Lift raises the sinus floor and develops bone for placement of Implants.
