Bone grafting, sinus grafting [lifting] and gum grafting

Author: Jim Knight

A dentist can carry out one or many procedures before placing dental implants if the height of the jawbone is not ideal. Following are few techniques that help to build jawbone to required height and width to place dental implants.

Bone Grafting

Advancement in dental treatments has given way to implement many new procedures. Bone grafting is one such procedure which is widely used in dental treatments as they are offering effective results.

 

Commonly four types of bone grafting procedures are in use today; autograft, allograft, xenograft and alloplast.

 

Autograft are those bone grafts where a bone that has to be grafted to the jaw is taken from the patients own body. Donor site, the place from where bone is harvested will be either mouth or hip. As the bone is harvested from patients own body it becomes more compatible. This type of bone graft is considered as the excellent approach as it results in greatest regeneration of the bone to the required size.

 

Allograft: In this, grafts are taken from human donors for grafting it to the jaw bone. Many countries have donor programs where an individual can willingly indicate offer of his bones after his decease for the advantage of others. Bones obtained from human donors are tested rigorously and sterilized previously using them for grafting intention.

 

Xenograft: In this grafts are harvested from animal bones, most commonly from cow. Bones obtained in this manner are tested and sterilized to utilize for grafting approach.

 

Alloplast: In this strategy gaps in bones are filled using grafts from man made synthetic materials .Most simple components used for alloplast is calcium phosphate.

 

Purpose of Bone grafting

A bone graft is basically used to replace bone tissue either to replace missing one or to repair infected one. Bone grafting not only fills the space between the bones but also helps new bone to grow in that place. A successful bone grafting method can restore shape of the bone both in height and width. A patient has many options of bone grafting, but the category of bone grafting is should be decided by your dentist based on your jaw bone demand.

Sinus Grafting

Another standard kind of bone replacement graft in practise today is sinus grafting; this is also called as sinus lifting bone grafting. Sinuses are empty places in our body which have nothing them. There are sinuses called maxillary sinuses that are located just behind our cheeks. When upper teeth are removed there will be only a slim wall left between maxillary sinuses and the mouth which makes it ridiculous for dentists to place dental implants in that space . In such cases sinus bone graft or

sinus lift technique is applied. Sinuses are entered in the path of upper teeth root to lift the sinus to graft a bone in that place. Usually implants are placed simultaneously during sinus lifting procedure. It takes some months for the same to renew. Once the place is healed, manufactured teeth are fixed into the implants. If the wall between sinus and mouth is thick enough to place dental implants then both grafting and arrangement of dental implants can be carried out simultaneously. But if the wall is thin, then dentist want to hold on till the graft is healed properly to position implants.

 

Purpose of sinus bone grafting

Prime principle of sinus bone grafting is to replace upper back teeth in a comfortable fashion. This system makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants instead of wearing loose dentures.

 

Gum grafting

Gum Grafting is used to replace receding gums. Causes for receding gums contain periodontal diseases and excessive brushing of teeth. Soft or hard tissues are used to replace receding gums. The kind of tissue to be used depends on the position of the grafting. It is a sensitive system and patient needs to take off some time to restore the gums after undergoing gum graft approach. Gum tissue is referred as gingiva in dentistry. There are basically two types of gingiva, soft and hard. Hard tissue protects roots of the teeth and soft tissue lies over the hard tissue. When gums open to recede, soft tissue disappears first. If receding of gums is identified in the correct time soft tissue gum grafting can assist replace receding gum tissue. But in numerous cases it is only identified in the later stages, where only hard tissue gum grafting can help replacing receding gum tissue. Gum grafts also take time to recover like other grafting procedures.

 

Purpose of Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is principally used to replace receding gums. Receding gums identified in true time and treated with gum grafting can save patients from crucial health issues.
