Why Is Dental Bone Grafting Done?
If you want one or more dental implants, you need adequate jawbone structure to anchor the implant. If your jawbone has deteriorated from having missing teeth, a bone graft procedure will add real or synthetic bone, creating a strong foundation for implant placement. You will have to wait several months for the bone graft to heal before having implant surgery.
What Is the Cost for a Bone Graft?
Your personal cost for a bone graft depends on the number of dental implants you will receive and whether all of the areas need bone augmentation. Contact us to arrange a consultation. You’ll choose a bone material (your own bone or synthetic bone) during the consultation, and then you can ask questions and learn your anticipated cost.
When Is the Sinus Lift Procedure Used?
When you don’t have enough bone thickness in your upper jaw for a dental implant, our oral surgeon can do a bone graft procedure. He or she will need to raise your sinuses if there isn’t enough room. Both the bone graft and sinus lift are done at the same time.
