Dental implants have grown to be one of the best solutions for missing tooth with its long lasting, stable and natural looking properties. However in people without adequate bone presence in the jaws, dental implants fail to be a plausible option. Bone grafting and sinus lift surgery become important in this context.
The lack of healthy bone for supporting dental implants can occur due to a variety of reasons such as injuries, developmental defects or gum diseases. Bone grafting or augmentation provides an ideal solution in these cases for the restoration of the bone structure, providing a robust base for supporting implants. It also helps in restoring the natural jaw line and smile.
So, how can this be achieved?
Bone augmentation can be carried out with the help of several surgical procedures. However, the most common techniques include bone grafting and sinus lift surgeries. They are explained in details as follows.
Bone grafting procedure is done to solve the deficiencies in the bone structure by adding up or building up on the jaw bones. This can be done with the help of bones extracted from another part of our body or with those collected from a donor. Nowadays, synthetic bone structures are also popular. The procedure is done after the administration of local or general anaesthesia and would require a healing time of about 3 or 4 months before implants are infused.
A sinus lift or augmentation surgery is performed on those without an adequate natural bone structure to replace missing back teeth in the upper jaws. This helps in restoring the bone structure below the sinus and providing a sturdy base for implant supported teeth. The procedure requires a healing time of about 1 to 3 months before the implants can be placed.
