BONE AND SOFT TISSUE (GUM) GRAFTING
Dr. Khouly can make your dental implants possible with bone grafting procedures!
If you’re missing one or more teeth, a solution that provides a permanent, enhanced bite is almost always desired. However, many people do not have an adequate amount of bone height or width required to support a dental implant in their upper or lower jaw. For many of our patients, we are able to perform a bone augmentation procedure to help. Please call us today to arrange your appointment for a bone grafting consultation.
Our specialists are trained to perform bone augmentation and sinus lifts to help those in our care get the results they want. If you are in need of a dental implant in the upper row of teeth, but have been told that there isn't enough bone in the area because of the large sinus cavities, you'll most likely need a sinus lift procedure. This entails opening a tiny space in the area of the sinus from inside the mouth and packing some bone grafting material in the bottom of the sinus, at the site of the future implant. Based on the amount of available bone, a decision is made to place an implant at the same time as the sinus lift, or some months after healing.
