Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifts

Bone grafting, also known as regenerative surgery, is one way to restore bone structure where you’ve lost teeth. When you lose teeth, the jawbone recedes. Bone grafting restores both the gums surrounding the bone and the bone itself. If you’re lacking the bone needed for dental implants, we may recommend this procedure to prepare you for implants. Sinus lifts, or sinus augmentations, are another type of oral surgery used to prepare patients for implants. If your upper jaw doesn’t have sufficient bone for implants or if your sinuses are too close to your upper jaw, we can move the sinus membrane up away from the jawbone and add bone structure to the area.

Our doctors follow a revolutionary method of placing implants that results in incredible accuracy. With our computer guided implant surgery, we can use digital technology to eliminate any guesswork from both the planning and surgery. This saves you time and pain and leads to more accurate placement of dental implants, which we can place in about an hour!

To plan the most accurate surgery possible, Dr. Patel helped develop a virtual surgery using both CAD/CAM and CBCT technology. With Anatomage 3D anatomy software, he can view hard tissue, bone, nerves, airway, and skin profiles. This state-of-the-art technology lets him evaluate implants, impactions, jaw joints, sinus cavities, or airway and digitally lay out the procedure.

Sometimes your canine teeth don’t grow past the surface of your gums. These are referred to as impacted canines. Although surgery to correct this can be complicated, we’re able to do it right here in our office using our CBCT scan and other digital planning tools.

Just like canine teeth can do, wisdom teeth can grow in improperly and remain impacted, either fully or partially. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain as well as increase your risk for decay and infection as they are under your gums and difficult to clean. Additionally, they can cause crowding that makes orthodontic treatment difficult. We perform this routine surgical process in-house with local anesthesia, sometimes with sedation, to minimize discomfort.
