At Azarko Dental Group, our dentists perform bone grafts and sinus lift procedures with the goal of strengthening your jaw bone.
If you've lost bone in areas of your jaw due to tooth loss or gum disease, our Edmonton dentists can perform a dental bone graft to add volume and density where required. Once the bone graft has been placed, bone tissue can grow and regenerate, helping to preserve your oral health.
Bone grafts are typically recommended for patients with bone loss in their jaw. This procedure may be required to help:
Once the bone graft has been placed, your dentist will monitor your healing and recovery and let you know when your new bone is strong enough to support a dental implant.
A sinus lift is a bone grafting procedure in which your dentist adds bone material to the upper back jaw near the upper molars in preparation for a dental implant.
The amount of bone in the sinus area will be increased with a sinus lift, enabling your dentist to place the implant.
The sinus membrane is moved upward or lifted to make room for the bone. To start, the dentist will make an incision into the gum tissue and raise it, exposing the bone beneath.
After cutting a small circle in the bone, the dentist lifts the bony piece into the sinus cavity space and fills the hole with a bone graft.
The incision is then closed and the healing process begins. You will come in for a follow-up check-in appointment within 7 to 10 days.
