Socket Preservation The “socket” is the bone that keeps teeth in place, and may get damaged from infection, disease, or deformity in the jaw after a tooth has been lost or extracted. Following tooth loss, the neighboring gum and bone can shrink quickly. These deformities may be prevented or corrected with socket preservation. This can be done by filling the socket with bone graft material.
Sinus Lift Augmentation Sinus lift is a procedure that adds bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars, which is often necessary for patients who need dental implants to replace an upper molar. The bone is added between the jaw and maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of the nose and cheeks. This procedure is performed when there is not enough bone between the sinus for implant placement.
Jaw Bone Augmentation Bone augmentation is used to replace missing bone usually due to tooth loss, pathology (cysts / tumors), or trauma. Most often it is used to develop an implant site.
