Bone Grafting

In areas where teeth have been lost, the bone naturally shrinks and reabsorbs over time. There can be bone loss around an existing tooth due to infection, fracture, gum disease, or trauma. Grafting the site may be necessary prior to implant placement in cases of severe bone loss, bone grafting can often be done at the same time as implant placement. There are many developed bone grafting techniques and materials available, including minimally invasive treatment options. Some types of bone grafting may require a 4-6 month healing period. Dr. Cullum will recommend the best technique and materials based on your specific needs.

Sinus Floor Elevation

After tooth loss in the upper jaw, the sinus remodels lower which reduces the height of available bone for implant placement. Bone height between the sinus and gums can vary significantly from patient to patient, depending on many factors, including the length of time since tooth loss. Elevation of the sinus floor with grafting can allow for implant placement. Many minimally invasive treatment options allow for the implant to be placed at the same time as the sinus elevation to reduce the healing period and minimize discomfort.

Ridge Expansion

Ridge Expansion is a minimally invasive technique used to restore bone loss when the ridge gets too thin to place implants. Ridge Expansion stimulates healing from within the bone cavity, allowing for the possibility of simultaneous implant placement in the same surgery.
