& Sinus Lift
Dental implants rely on the presence of enough strong, healthy jaw bone to support and anchor the dental implants in place. When there is not enough healthy bone available for the implant, we at TCare Dental Centre typically recommend bone grafting & sinus lift procedures.
Dental implants can restore your smile and give you back the functionality of lost teeth. Bone grafting & sinus lift procedures make dental implants a possibility for just about everyone.
What Is Bone Grafting Or Sinus Lift for Dental Implants?
When there is not enough healthy bone on the upper or lower jaws for a dental implant, donor bone or laboratory-created bone can be added to the jaw to increase the bone structure. The bone can come from several sources, including from another part of your body, a cadaver, a cow, or a synthetic source.
In a sinus lift procedure, the Schneiderian membrane in the upper jaw is lifted before a bone grafting material is inserted. This helps elevate the sinus, holding it in place and increasing the amount of healthy bone structure needed to anchor a dental implant.
More About Where Bone Grafts Come From
Bone grafts can be made from either natural or synthetic materials or can come from the patient’s own bones.
- Xenograft: Material that comes from the bones of an animal, often horses or cows.
- Allograft: Graft materials that are not sourced from an animal or from the person themselves. Cadaver grafts and synthetic grafts are both examples of allografts.
- Autograft: Bone material harvested from the patient’s own bones, lowering the chance of rejection significantly.
