Bone & Sinus Grafting
Missing teeth cause the jawbone to atrophy and become absorbed by the body. Bone grafting while removing a tooth is designed to preserve the natural bone contours. If a tooth has been missing for an extended period, we may recommend a bone graft to strengthen the jaw. Dental Implants require adequate bone density and volume for successful implant placement.
Dr. Nassiri have undergone advanced training in bone and sinus grafting. This specialist surgical treatments can play a vital role in both periodontics and dental implants. At our office, we utilize modern bone grafting techniques to augment weakened jaws and bone structures in preparation for dental implants. A bone graft by an experienced clinician will help regenerate the bone necessary for a long-lasting implant.
Did you know…
That the majority of American adults over age 35 are missing, at least, one natural tooth? What’s more is that 1 in 4 seniors age 74 and older are missing all of their permanent teeth. Many times due to progressive disease, infection or trauma, bone and soft tissue are lost in areas around the teeth. Bone resorption, or deterioration, occurs naturally when teeth are lost or removed unless dental implants are placed to preserve the bone. tooth loss is not the only reason for bone grafting procedure. Many patients have deteriorated gum lines or inadequate jaw bone support caused by oral diseases, such as periodontal disease, or a physical trauma to the face. Others experience bone atrophy caused by prolonged denture wear. By grafting in bone and building up the gum line, a dentist can make it possible for a patient’s jaw and gums to support permanent dental implants.
