Bone Grafting & Sinus Lift in El Cajon, CA
Replacing missing bone or adding to existing bone is very often essential to the success of a dental implant and the ensuing restoration. Loss of bone volume is a result of gum disease, infection or trauma. Bone loss also occurs when teeth are missing.
When there is insufficient bone to surround and anchor the dental implant, bone grafting augments the existing bone in the jaw. It’s also called bone reconstruction since the jaw is being rehabilitated to its ideal state.
We will evaluate the bone integrity and density of your jaw to determine if you’ll need bone grafting. Bone grafting is performed on-site in our facilities. Usually bone grafting can be done at the same time the implant is placed.
