Today’s ever-changing technology has greatly enhanced our abilities to improve one's smile which is always beneficial to a person's self-esteem and self-confidence. At Bellagio Dental Implant Center we include PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) with our bone grafting material to regenerate cells and promote healing at no extra charge. If you want to replace a tooth or are going to lose a tooth, bone grafting will help prepare you for your implant needs.
Bone Grafting Procedures:
There are times when a patient needs a dental implant for the replacement of a missing tooth, but the amount of bone present in that particular area is insufficient to provide a strong foundation for the implant. In such cases, bone grafting is performed as a pre-requisite for the implant treatment, in order to prevent implant failure. There are three different types of bone grafting procedures that we perform at the clinic:
Site Preservation: When a tooth is removed, the bone that supported it will begin to shrink over time. Placement of bone grafting materials at the time of extraction will provide the body with a “scaffold” to create its own bone in the remaining socket as it heals, and will preserve the bone volume to allow placement of an implant. This bone is ideal for implant placement 4-6 months after the grafting procedure.
Expansion of Bone Width: If a tooth has been missing for quite some time, there often is not enough bone volume for the implant to be fixed into. In this case, a larger amount of bone grafting material needs to be added as well as increased time for healing to an implant being placed.
Bone Grafting Near Sinus Cavity: A sinus cavity (airspace) exists in the upper jaw near the root tips of the teeth. After the tooth has been extracted, the sinus cavity will often expand and cause thinning of the bone, to the point where not enough bone is available to place a dental implant of sufficient length.
