Our Bone Grafting Treatments

Sinus Lift

Do you have bone loss above your upper molars? This is actually under the sinus cavity. If the bone thins, it leaves the area too shallow to support a dental implant. We’ll precisely lift the sinus membrane, place bone grafting material, and restore proper bone density, and health, below.

Ridge Augmentation

After a tooth is extracted, without the proper support the jaw ridge may break down and fall into the socket left behind. This can affect facial shape, and in turn your facial appearance. We’ll restore the natural contours and density of one area or your entire ridgeline to preserve a proper foundation.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

Don’t let bone loss harm your health.
