Bone Grafting / Sinus Augmentation

What is Bone Grafting for Dental Implants?

Bone grafting for dental implants is a procedure that aims to restore lost bone tissue in the jaw, providing a solid foundation for the placement of dental implants. While dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing teeth, they require sufficient bone support to ensure long-term success. In cases where the bone tissue is lacking, bone grafting becomes necessary. Dr Ivanov skillfully utilizes bone tissue from donors’ or patients’ own mouths to supplement the existing bone tissue in the jaw. This can be done using several different techniques, such as a bone plates graft, a sinus or a ridge augmentation.

After completion of the graft, a healing period takes place, allowing the bone to regenerate and solidify. This process, known as Guided Bone Regeneration, is necessary to create a stable base for dental implants. Over time, the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue, creating a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth. If you have been advised that you lack sufficient bone tissue for dental implants, bone grafting may offer a viable solution. Dental implants supported by regenerated bone, with proper care and maintenance, can provide a durable and natural-looking tooth replacement option. Be sure to consult with Dr Ivanov to determine if bone grafting is suitable for your specific situation and to explore the available options for bone augmentation.

What is a Sinus Lift Procedure for Dental Implants?

The sinus lift procedure is a type of oral surgery performed to prepare the upper jawbone for dental implant placement. It becomes necessary when the upper jaw lacks sufficient bone height or when the sinuses are too close to the jawbone, obstructing implant placement. With precision, he gently lifts the sinus membrane away from the jawbone, creating a space for bone graft material.
This graft material, often sourced from a cadaver or bovine bone, encourages the regeneration and remodeling of the patient’s own bone over time, establishing a stable foundation for dental implants. Once the bone has completely healed, the dental implants can be securely placed in the jawbone, paving the way for durable and resilient replacement teeth. If you have been advised to undergo a sinus lift procedure for dental implants, it is crucial to trust the expertise of a skilled periodontist like Dr Ivanov. With the right care and treatment, you can enjoy the benefits of dental implants and a restored smile for many years to come.
