What is Bone Grafting

Dental Implant Preparation Procedures

Dr. Young will determine whether you need a ride augmentation, sinus lift, or another type of bone graft to restore missing bone tissue in the area where implants will be placed.

Bone grafting and sinus lift procedures are typically performed under anesthesia [link to sedation page] because we will need to make an incision in the area where the graft is needed before shaping the bone graft material into the sinus cavity or space. The graft can be held in place with pins, plates, screws, wires, or cables, depending on the area being treated and amount of grafting tissue necessary. Once the graft is secured in place, we will need to close the incision with stitches or bandage the wound. The bone will need to heal before we can move forward with dental implant placement or other restorative work. This process can take several months.
