Bone Grafting in Coral Springs
Dental bone grafts refer to the procedure of building up the bone. Sometimes when a dental implant is placed, it is necessary to build up the bone in the area to ensure success. Dental bone grafting is a common procedure in dentistry, and it is used quite a bit for dental implants and in periodontal procedures around natural teeth. In order to do bone grafting, a source of bone is needed to place in the site. It is very safe and very useful in our work to help patients.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from the patient’s own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.
Bone graft material is safe, and the procedure is highly effective. It should be noted that the grafted material completely vanishes in less than a year as it becomes replaced by your body’s own bone structure. Dental bone grafts along with this bone material have been used in modern periodontics for over 30 years and in millions of cases.
Once the dental grafting procedure has been completed, other dental implant procedures can proceed. Make sure that you discuss your medical history before opting for bone grafting. Also, make sure to ask your dentist all the benefits and demerits of bone grafting. Once you and your doctor is fully ready for the procedure, you can expect great results from this.

Sinus lifting is a procedure performed by an oral surgeon or specialist. The procedure is designed to augment or “lift” bone height at the top of the jaw. This increase of bone mass enhances the ability of a dentist to install dental implants in an individual whose loss of teeth, or facial bone structure does not allow enough space for such implants.
In most cases, the sinus lift procedure will be performed prior to a dental implant, but in some cases, both procedures may be performed at the same time. At its most basic description, a sinus lift adds bone to the upper jaw bone in the molar or premolar areas in order to make it thicker. Such procedures have been performed successfully for over a decade. The cases where one can opt for sinus lift would include:
People who have lost their teeth in the upper jaw.
Loss of bone due to gum diseases.
Tooth loss leading to bone loss
- Maxillary sinus too close to the upper jaw bones for implants to be placed.
Post the procedure, it would take some time for the bone material to harden and get integrated with the jaw bone. One should consult their dentist regularly and follow oral hygiene in order to get quick and effective results.
What are the Benefits of a Sinus Lift?
Patients with inadequate bone due to periodontal disease may not qualify for the placement of dental implants. Sinus lifts can provide such patients with adequate bone in the upper jaw for the placement of dental implants.
