bone grafting

I have always had a fear of wearing dentures in later life, this is no longer the case. I am very happy with the result and would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you for your kindness.”

How bone grafting works

Bone Grafting can replace and regenerate lost bone and restore proper facial contour. Where a tooth (or teeth) have been missing for a long time or may have been affected by gum disease there may not be sufficient bone to place dental implants.

In order to place dental implants in these situations we need to graft the bone in these areas. Bone grafting can be carried out using a natural bone substitute. This material is prepared from a very carefully controlled source and is processed to remove all organic material.

This material is most commonly used for sinus grafts (a procedure where we insert more material into the sinus by lifting the membrane). Grafts typically take 6 months to mature before we can place implants.

Frequently in the sinus region we place implants at the same time as the graft procedure which cuts down on the number of surgical procedures required. This often allows us to restore implants within a similar time frame to normal implants.
