Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants are a popular option for replacing missing teeth due to their durability and natural appearance. However, for a successful implant placement, a sufficient amount of bone is required to secure the implant. If bone loss has occurred due to tooth loss or gum disease, a bone graft may be necessary to create a stable foundation for the implant.
Bone Grafting for Dental Implants
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting bone tissue. In the context of dental implants, this procedure helps rebuild or reinforce the jawbone to create a solid base for the implants. Bone grafts can come from the patient’s own body, a donor, or be synthetically produced.
Sinus Lift or Sinus Grafting
Sinus grafting, also known as a sinus lift, is a specific type of bone grafting procedure used when there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be placed. The process involves adding bone below the sinus, where natural bone has deteriorated due to missing back teeth, thereby raising the sinus floor and allowing for dental implants to be placed securely.
The Benefits of Bone and Sinus Grafting
- Successful Implant Placement. By rebuilding and reinforcing the jawbone, these procedures ensure that dental implants have a strong and stable foundation, leading to a higher success rate for implant placement.
- Improved Facial Structure. Bone loss in the jaw can lead to a change in facial structure, often resulting in a prematurely aged appearance. Bone grafting can help to restore the natural shape of your face by reversing this bone loss.
- Better Oral Function. With a sturdy foundation for dental implants, you can enjoy improved oral function, allowing you to eat and speak more comfortably and confidently.
