Sinus Grafting and Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

Sinus Lift – Creating bone to be able to place Implants

The jawbone may become thinner especially with long-term tooth loss, because of the lack of stimulation from the lost tooth roots. A thin or narrow jaw area will not be able to support the placement of dental implants. Bone grafting is done to improve the jawbone structure, by the addition of a bone graft material (from a variety of sources). The material is left to integrate with the surrounding tissue during a healing period, after which the implants can then be placed in the area successfully.
A sinus grafting procedure, on the other hand, is done to improve the structure of the upper jaw – specifically in the area where the molars and premolars are located. Also called a sinus lift, the procedure involves the lifting of the sinus flap to provide access to the maxillary sinus portion of the upper jaw. This area will be augmented using a sinus graft material, which will work in improving the height of the upper jaw. Upon completion of a specified healing period, the upper jaw area will then have the required height and volume to support the placement of dental implants, as an ideal solution for missing teeth problems.
