Available For Additional Bone Support
Your jawbone is the foundation of your smile, and it’s the bedrock in which your teeth roots are embedded. When you lose one or more of these roots, your jawbone receives less stimulation when you bite and chew. Over time, this can cause your jawbone to lose some of its mass and density, which can make it less able to support your remaining healthy teeth or any dental implant posts. Jawbone grafting and sinus lifting are designed to fortify your lower or upper jawbone (respectively), allowing us to more successfully place your dental implants and rebuild your smile.
Jawbone grafting is the process of strengthening your lower jawbone, or mandible, with the use of biocompatible material and natural bone growth. By contrast, a sinus lift involves carefully lifting the sinus floor to make room for the grafting material and implant. Typically, we utilize minimally invasive procedures and techniques, including mini dental implants, that make bone grafting and sinus lifting unnecessary. However, in severe cases of bone loss or degradation, we may utilize these procedures to ensure optimal results when rebuilding your smile.
If your jawbone has lost some of its structure, then you might benefit from jawbone grafting or a sinus lift before receiving your dental implants.
