Bone grating - Bone grafting
When a more solid base is needed for a tooth implant, a bone graft can be used. Usually, the piece of bone necessary for the dental implant is removed from another part of your jaw or your body — your hip, for example — and transplanted to your jawbone. The technique is not simple and it may require up to nine months for the transplanted bone to grow enough new bone to support a dental implant.
Sometimes, when dental implants are necessary but there is not enough space in the upper jaw, a sinus lift becomes necessary. Normally, because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw. Sometimes, the bone may have been lost because of periodontal disease. Other causes of bone reduction might be tooth loss. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed back into the body. If teeth have been missing for a long time, the bone left might not be enough for placing implants. Sinus lifting is a procedure that has become gradually popular over the past 15 years.
