Sinus Grafting for Dental Implants

Sinus GraftingWhen bone is inadequate for dental implant placement in the upper back teeth, the bone is grafted so implants may be placed. In most cases a bone matrix will be added into the sinus. The sinus is a hollow area in the upper jaw which is an excellent site for the addition of bone. Access is made inside the mouth and a bone matrix is added. The area of the sinus grafting heals for 6-9 months, after which time the dental implants are placed.

Bone that forms in the sinus after grafting can be stronger than your natural bone. This makes sinus grafting a preferred option when there is minimal bone available.

Sinus grafting historically is a very predictable area to add bone.
