Dental implants fit into the jawbone where they integrate with the natural bone to create a strong restoration that can last decades. However, if your jawbone lacks healthy bone tissue, you may need additional procedures before the dental implants can be placed. Today, we 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.

Factors That Affect Your Jawbone Density

• Gum disease
• Long-term denture wear
• Facial trauma
• Natural defects
• Tooth loss

Bone Grafts
Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. Bone grafts can be performed using your own natural bone, donor bone or synthetic materials.

Sinus Lifts
When upper teeth are missing, the sinus cavity tends to expand, which leads to the deterioration of the natural bone. A sinus lift or sinus augmentation can help rebuild this bone so that dental implants can be placed without risking damage to the sinus.

Ridge Augmentation
This procedure used to restore the lost bone dimension when the jaw ridge gets too thin to place conventional implants. In this procedure, the bony ridge of the jaw is literally expanded by mechanical means. Bone graft material can be placed and matured for a few months before placing the implant.
