Bone Grafting

Major and Minor Bone Grafting

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.  However, we now have the ability to grow bone where needed.  This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.  The bone graft procedures are referred to as:

Sinus Lift Procedure

This procedure involves elevating the sinus membrane and placing the bone graft onto the sinus floor, allowing implants to be placed in the back part of the upper jaw

Ridge Augmentation

In severe cases the ridge has been reabsorbed and a bone graft is placed to increase the ridge height and/or width.
