Dental implants are a highly effective, long-lasting option to restore your teeth.

Several factors, however, can affect your ability to receive implants. Tooth loss, gum disease, injury, infection and smoking can all increase bone loss over time, preventing you from being a candidate for dental implants.

Better Outcomes for Dental Implant Placement

Bone grafting can replace missing bone, allowing a dental implant to be placed. Before starting, a plan is created with a 3D cone beam radiographic scan of the jaw to ensure that you need a graft. If so, it is a simple procedure performed under local anaesthetic. About 6-9 months are required for the graft to heal, and studies show a high success rate with today’s top-quality grafting materials.

Grafting Procedures Offered at Kew Dentistry

Onlay Graft

Performed in hospital under general anaesthetic, an onlay graft restores bone to the front part of the upper jaw from fully trained oral surgeons.

Sinus Graft

Restore the bone height in the back of the upper jaw. This routine dental surgical procedure replaces missing bone while helping your body regenerate its natural bone, improving the conditions for dental implant replacement.

Not all implant placements require a bone graft. Your dentist will discuss with you whether this procedure is necessary. Book your time today! Free undercover parking is available.
