If you are finding it difficult to get dental implants because of jawbone deterioration or fragile sinuses, our implantology experts could provide a ray of light.
Our bone grafting procedure makes it possible to place perfect implants by promoting the regrowth of jawbone lost through periodontal disease or prolonged denture wearing.
And when the maxillary sinuses are thin or weak, a reinforcing sinus graft gives them the strength needed to accept upper jaw implants.
Both procedures are carried out by an expert implantology and maxillofacial team boasting years of combined experience carrying out these life-changing procedures.
Bone grafting reinforces one or both of the jawbones when they are too compromised to accept implants safely.
Usually, this occurs as a result of periodontal disease, missing teeth, surgery or trauma.
To stimulate regrowth, our team takes a small sample of bone from another area of your body to graft to the jawbone. (It’s also possible to use synthetic bone or a sample from a bone bank.)
Over a few months, the bones fuse, providing enough strength to situate implants safely with a fantastic long-term outlook.
In some cases, we may be able to carry out the bone graft at the same time as inserting implants.
Among the challenges of placing implants in the upper jaw are the maxillary sinuses located just below the cheeks. They are like small cavities, separated from the mouth by a thin sinus wall.
Some of the roots of the upper teeth extend into these sinuses. Remove these, and the sinus wall isn't always strong enough to accept replacement implants.
In a sinus graft, also called a sinus lift, our team attaches a small piece of donor bone to reinforce the membrane, giving it the integrity needed to place implants with confidence.
In some cases, a sinus lift may be performed in the same procedure as the implant placement.
As someone who's a bit of a wimp when it comes to needles and drills, I was pleased to discover that this is the first dental surgery I've been to where the treatment genuinely doesn't hurt - a testament to the skill and care provided by the staff. Treatment - fillings x 2, some reconstructive/aesthetic work and several hygiene appointments.
I have nothing but good things to say about the treatment I have recieved at Buckle Advanced Dental Care over the last year. Dr. Buckle and the rest of the team are caring, knowledgable and always take the time to ensure I understand whats happening with my teeth, which really puts me at ease. Thank you!
I would give 10 stars if I could.
The renowned expertise and experience of Dr Buckle and the team attracts patients from across the UK and beyond to undergo bone and sinus grafting in preparation for implant treatment.
