Bone Grafting for Implant Placement
When the jawbone lacks sufficient depth to hold the implants in place bone grafting is necessary. This means taking bone from one area of the body or a ‘donor site’ before grafting it into the jawbone. This is done to increase the width and depth of the bone.This bone is taken from either the chin or the hip.
The dentist will build up the ridge of the jawbone before inserting the implant. There are 4 types of grafts available although the autogenous or allograft is the most popular choice of graft. The graft is held in place by tacks and a barrier membrane. Once the graft has taken place the site is ready for the implants. These are inserted in the normal manner.
The Sinus Lift is a technique of raising the Sinus Lining so that there is sufficient space to augmentation additional bone that will help support the Dental Implants.
