The alveolar jaw bone supports the roots of the teeth as well as the soft tissues of the lower face, and builds the foundation for a beautiful smile. Bone loss in the jaws is commonly associated with tooth removal and can atrophy over time. For this reason, it is common to perform some degree of bone grafting either prior to or simultaneous with dental implant placement.
What Is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is the process by which missing bone is regenerated using materials that stimulate bone growth.
What Is a Sinus Lift?
The maxillary sinuses are the largest of the air cavities within the skull and may expand as we age, thinning the bone over the molar region. The sinus lift technique is used to gently raise the floor of the maxillary sinus and allow for new bone formation.
Our Advanced Technology
At Glacial Sands OMS, we are proud of our best-in-class technology, which enables us to provide our patients with an improved experience and superior surgical outcomes.
We use comprehensive 3-D scanning to accurately assess the bone and augment tissue with care and precision. We utilize AI software that enables us to determine the patient’s current bone density and plan treatments that will promote the long-term success of the dental implant.
Comfort and Recovery After Your Treatment
The recovery process can vary quite a bit from patient to patient and depends greatly on the timing of the bone graft in relation to other procedures.
One of the things that sets Glacial Sands OMS apart is that we use platelet-rich fibrin, or PRF, in nearly all bone grafting procedures. PRF harnesses your body’s natural healing properties and growth factors and facilitates a much more robust recovery. The use of PRF abbreviates the post-operative timeline while also ensuring the best, healthiest outcomes for our patients.
