Nimmi Shine Dental
Bone Graft/Sinus Lift in San Diego and Temecula
The Bone Graft Procedure
A bone graft is a procedure to repair or rebuild your bones by transplanting bone tissue. The procedure will begin once our Temecula’s best dentist evaluates your condition and determines you’re a good candidate for it. Additionally, our surgeon will help recreate supporting bones and tissues by transplanting healthy bone tissue in your jaw. You may also need bone grafting in San Diego and Temecula when your jawbone isn’t strong enough or you experience a bone loss that can potentially affect your gums and teeth health. Our dentist will extract healthy bone tissue and then surgically fuse it with your present jawbone.
Good candidates for a bone graft/sinus lift
Patients with the following dental conditions are perfect for a bone grafting/sinus lift.
Dental implants for a missing tooth
You may require bone grafting if you need a dental implant to restore your missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into your jawbone.
Some patients suffer from bone deterioration or bone loss when they lose their teeth. As a result, your jawbone becomes weak and can’t hold an implant in place. Thus, Temecula and San Diego’s bone grafting dentist, Dr. Mara, will suggest getting a sinus lift service before you get a dental implant.
Gum disease or tooth loss
Patients who suffer from gum disease or tooth loss can possibly develop injections or jawbone damage. Not only does it weaken a particular segment of your jaw, but it can also affect nearby teeth and gum tissue. Therefore, it is essential to undergo bone grafting to stabilize your jaw and prevent further health complications.
Patients that are affected by bone loss are also candidates for bone grafting/sinus lifting. Bone loss can cause your face to look shorter, wrinkles on your skin, and bone-thinning. Additionally, bone loss also affects the appearance of certain parts of your face, including your surrounding muscles and lips.
