Bone Graft

Bone Graft for Your Dental Implants in Tijuana

One of the most significant problems associated with missing teeth is bone loss or resorption. Bone loss occurs due to loss of the natural tooth root, which stimulates bone maintenance in the jaw. Without bone, patients who desire implants to restore missing teeth are unable to achieve a high-quality implant of the correct length and width. However, with the ability to grow new bone by grafting material to the region of bone loss (bone graft), our dentists are now able to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

Reasons for bone loss include periodontal disease, traumatic injury or previous extraction. Bone loss naturally occurs, resulting in a receding bone and shrinkage of tissues. Some of the sequelae of this process include alterations in your facial appearance and strength of the facial muscles or even gum defects that impact your ability to eat and to digest. New bone can be obtained from your jaw, hip or the tibia when an implant has improper bone structure. Sometimes, a membrane is placed to protect the bone graft and facilitate regeneration of the bone. This type of bone graft procedure is known as a guided tissue regeneration or bone regeneration.

sinus lift graft is a bone graft procedure used to augment the thin walls of the maxillary sinus to anchor dental implants. Before implants can be placed, several months of healing and maturation may be necessary. If the adequate bone is available prior to augmentation of the maxillary sinus floor, implants can be placed immediately. The sinus lift graft is primarily used for patients with missing upper teeth.

The Right Choice for Your Pocket

Some patients experience a significant loss of the dental ridge. Our dentists use a state of the art technique to place bone graft and increase the height or width. When the jaw ridge has resorbed and is no longer thick enough for the placement of conventional dental implants, this type of graft procedure is performed.

Major bone grafts are required when patients suffer from a jawbone defect due to blunt force trauma, tumors, or birth deformities. Other patients may have experienced periodontal disease, treated by removing infected gum tissue and subsequently contouring the uneven bone that remains.

Bones and gum tissue should fit up against the tooth, snugly, and patients with periodontal disease will often experience the destruction of the tissues that support the teeth, allowing the teeth to become loose. Your dentist may recommend a bone regeneration procedure to reverse some of the damage of periodontal disease.

If you’ve been edentulous for a long time or if you’re considering a dental implant procedure, you may have experienced bone loss. You may require a bone graft procedure to secure your implants properly.
