Bone Grafting

Bone grafting in dentistry is a procedure that involves adding bone or a bone-like material to the jawbone to enhance its volume and strength. It is commonly performed to restore bone loss in the jaw, which may occur due to tooth extraction, periodontal disease, trauma, or other factors.

Why is it important?

The primary goal of bone grafting is to provide a solid foundation for dental implants or to preserve the jawbone structure. Dental implants require sufficient bone volume and density to be successfully placed and integrated. Bone grafting helps regenerate and augment the jawbone to create a suitable environment for implant placement.

Sinus lift

A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation or sinus floor elevation, is a surgical procedure performed in dentistry to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw, particularly in the area of the premolars and molars. It is typically done when there is insufficient bone height in the posterior maxilla (upper jaw) due to the presence of the maxillary sinuses, which are air-filled spaces located above the upper teeth.
