    When it comes to dental implants, having a strong and stable foundation is essential for the success of your treatment. Two key procedures that can help achieve this are Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting. At DCT Klinik in Antalya, we specialise in these advanced techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care and outcomes for their dental implants.

     

    Understanding Bone Grafting

     

    Bone Grafting is a procedure designed to restore or augment bone in areas where there is insufficient bone mass for the safe placement of dental implants. This is often necessary for patients who have experienced bone loss due to periodontal disease, trauma, or long-term tooth loss. Here's how it works:

     

    The Process of Bone Grafting

     

    1.    Assessment and Planning:

     

    •  Our oral surgeons will conduct a thorough examination and use advanced imaging techniques to assess the bone structure in your jaw.
    •  Based on the assessment, a detailed plan is created to determine the best type of grafting material and the precise area that needs augmentation.

     

    2.   Graft Material:

     

    • The bone graft material can come from several sources, however the VIP clinics in Antalya and Fethiye use allografts (donor bone), xenografts (animal bone), or synthetic materials.
    • The choice of graft material depends on various factors, including the specific needs of the patient and the extent of the bone loss.

     

    3.   Surgical Procedure:

     

    • The procedure involves making a small incision in the gum to access the bone area.
    • The graft material is then placed and secured in the area that needs augmentation.
    • Over time, this graft material integrates with the natural bone, creating a stronger and more robust foundation for dental implants.

     

    What is Sinus Lifting?

     

     

    Sinus lifting, also known as sinus augmentation, is a specialised type of Bone Grafting aimed at increasing the bone height in the upper jaw, specifically in the area of the molars and premolars. This procedure is necessary when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw for implants to be placed properly.

     

    The Process of Sinus Lifting

     

    1.    Initial Evaluation:

     

    •  Our Oral Surgeons will perform a detailed examination and use imaging techniques to evaluate the anatomy of your sinuses and the bone structure in your upper jaw.

     

    2.    Preparation:

     

    • The procedure begins with a small incision in the gum to expose the bone.
    • A tiny window is created in the bone to access the sinus cavity.

     

    3.    Sinus Lift and Grafting:

     

    • The sinus membrane is carefully lifted upward, creating space for the bone graft material.
    • The bone graft material is then placed into the newly created space.
    • This additional bone material helps to increase the height and volume of the upper jawbone, providing a solid base for dental implants.

     

    Why Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting are Important

     

    If required, both Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting are critical procedures for ensuring the success of dental implants. Here’s why:

     

    • Improved Stability: These procedures provide the necessary bone structure to securely anchor the implants, ensuring they remain stable and functional.
    • Long-Term Success: By addressing bone deficiencies, these procedures increase the longevity and success rate of dental implants, giving patients a durable and lasting solution.

     

    Patient Care and Recovery

     

    At DCT Klinik, patient care and comfort are our top priorities. Both Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting are performed under local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience. After the procedure, we provide detailed aftercare instructions and follow-up advice, through our dedicated Support Department, to monitor healing and ensure the best possible outcomes.
