Bone Grafting for Implant Procedures

To view the extent of bone loss in the jaw, our team uses advanced 3D CBCT imaging. This technology reveals the exact positioning of anatomical structures in the mouth and aids our doctors in planning the right course of bone grafting care. The type of bone grafting needed depends on your unique circumstances and the area in the mouth in which teeth and bone have been lost. Our bone grafting procedures include ridge augmentation/preservation and sinus lift techniques.

Ridge Augmentation and Preservation Bone Grafting

Tooth loss leaves indentations, or depressions, along the bony ridge that supports teeth and implants. Ridge augmentation is a bone grafting procedure that rebuilds and restructures the bony arch where bone has resorbed. The end result restores natural contours of the jaw and creates a solid foundation for implant support. Ridge preservation is a bone grafting technique we use at the time of tooth extraction. This procedure adds bone tissue directly to tooth sockets to prepare an extraction site for future implant placement.

Sinus Lift Bone Grafting

Replacing upper premolar and molar teeth often presents a challenge, as the roots of these teeth sit in close proximity to the maxillary sinus floor. When these teeth are lost, the sinus cavity tends to expand, reducing the bone needed for implants. A sinus lift is a bone grafting technique that allows us to gently raise the floor of the sinus, adding bone tissue to increase bone height and width, and ultimately implant success.
