Bone Regeneration for Dental Implants

Do you have missing teeth? Have you had a missing tooth for an extended period? Have you been told you’re not suitable or ready for dental implants due to a lack of bone?

Don’t worry. Patients with insufficient bone can still receive dental implants by going under a pre-prosthetic procedure like a bone graft to replenish the bone.

How Do I Find Out if I Have Sufficient Bone?

We often see patients who have allowed their missing teeth to go untreated and, as a consequence, experience problems with insufficient bone density.

Signs of bone loss in the jaw typically lead to symptoms like teeth shifting out of place, gum shrinkage and facial sagging. It can also sometimes be a silent problem, as most patients will experience bone loss in as little as six months.

Depending on the severity of your condition, the times to rectify this problem can vary. However, if you need a bone graft, you will have to wait an additional few months for the graft to heal before placing the implants.

What’s the bone graft Procedure Like?

The treatment will involve taking bone from other areas where it is not technically needed. In many cases, the extra bone is taken from a different mouth portion.

Then, the bone is grafted into your jawbone, where it will build enough volume to eventually support an implant.

Tried and tested, it is one of the most reliable procedures available to allow patient mouths to be fit enough to hold implants.

Depending on the situation, other procedures may be required, like sinus elevation or augmentation, which could add several months to your healing time and push back your scheduled implant placement.

“I wasn’t the easiest patient, but they took the time to make me feel at ease and were at the end of the phone anytime I had any concerns. The transformation is incredible, and I can finally smile with confidence and no longer worry about being in company. Thank you.”

For the upper jaw, the bone height may be limited by the presence of the sinus. In this case, it is possible to increase the bone height by performing a Sinus Graft or Sinus Lift procedure. More.

The sinus graft procedure is the treatment of choice when the extra volume and height of bone is more than a few millimetres.

Sinus graft is a minor procedure where a small window, about 1cm in diameter, gently lifts the sinus lining and bone placed.

We advocate a healing period of 3 – 6 months before implant placement.

It is essential to speak to a restorative dentist about the possibility of implants and if you are a viable candidate for the procedure or not. 

With x-rays, a dentist will soon be able to diagnose what procedures are required so that you can have a successful implant.
