If we find that you have insufficient bone volume when considering dental implant treatment , don’t worry.

There are solutions in the form of procedures such as a bone grafting and a sinus lift that help you to accommodate the safe and predictable placement of dental implants. Using our state-of-the-art CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scanner, we can pinpoint exactly where you’re lacking healthy bone and take action to move your dental implants journey forwards

Reasons for jawbone loss

  • The jawbone has gone through the process of resorption (shrunk away) due to tooth loss. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone at the site of the lost tooth becomes redundant and begins to shrink away. Dental implants give the jawbone a reason to get back to work, as they fuse together with the jawbone, which accepts it as a brand-new tooth root.
  • The jawbone has shrunk away due to wearing removable denture for many years. Dentures don’t involve the placement of implants, so they won’t solve the issue of the jawbone not receiving the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and abundant.
  • Loss of jawbone due to a dental infection.
  • Loss of bone height overtime because of advanced gum disease.
  • Genetic reasons for jawbone loss because of the natural size and shape of your jaw.
  • Large sinuses that result in insufficient bone in the back areas of the upper jaw for implant placement.

Bone graft

It’s possible to use your own bone, donor bone or synthetic bone to reconstruct the bone in the jaw, so that dental implants treatment can go ahead. Once the native bone begins to grow after a bone graft has been performed, it will replace the graft material, making way for a fully integrated portion of new bone.

Sinus lift

Sinuses are the natural air spaces of our upper jaws. We can perform a sinus lift to raise the lining of the sinus, to create room for the growth of new bone, once a bone graft has been performed. This then makes it possible to place dental implants.
