Restoring Your Jaw After Bone Has Been Lost

Living with missing teeth is never a pleasant experience, but what’s worse, is that the longer you go without replacing missing teeth, the more jaw bone volume you lose. When you are seeking to replace missing teeth with dental implants, a key factor to determining if you qualify is the amount of bone in your jaw. Adequate jaw bone volume is necessary to support the dental implant post and prevent it from failing, but when bone loss has occurred, many patients require bone grafting treatment to qualify. Bone grafting utilizes a small sample of bone from you or a donor source to restore the necessary volume acceptable for dental implants. At Durham Dental Implant Solutions, we offer effective bone grafting techniques to help you qualify for dental implants.

Our Techniques and Technologies

We believe in staying up-to-date with the latest in bone grafting techniques and technology to ensure successful results. For most bone grafting procedures, we make use of plasma rich growth factors to encourage a quicker healing timeframe by utilizing samples of your own plasma obtained from your blood to speed up the healing process. During sinus lift surgery, we use ultrasonic PIEZOSURGERY® technology to gently access the sinus cavity without harming soft tissues like the gums or the delicate sinus membrane.

Ridge Augmentation

Ridge Augmentation

When bone loss has occurred, it can make the jaw thinner in certain areas. Ridge augmentation grafting restores this thinned area to an acceptable volume.

Sinus Lift

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is an advanced bone grafting process that accesses the sinus cavity when back upper teeth are missing. The sinus membrane is gently raised and bone grafting material is placed underneath to create sufficient bone volume to support dental implants.
