Byars utilizes recent advances in medicine, state-of-the-art technology, and minimally invasive techniques to allow patients to undergo dental bone graft procedures and experience quick recovery with great results.

About Bone Grafting

About Sinus Lifting

3-D Cone Beam CT Scanner.
When you have back teeth missing in your upper arch and bone loss occurs in those areas, the sinus cavities behind your cheeks expand downward, leaving just a thin wall of bone between the sinus and mouth. This is also referred to as a “dropping” of the sinus floor.

When an implant needs to be placed in one of the affected areas, bone grafting is necessary to provide enough support for the implant to be stably anchored. This is known as a sinus lift because it has the result of “lifting” the floor of the sinus back into its original position.

Dr. Byars is highly skilled in this procedure. He is able to perform sinus lifts where it is only necessary to raise part of the sinus floor for the placement of a single implant, and he can also perform procedures where he raises the entire sinus floor to allow for the placement of multiple implants.

Why is a dental bone graft needed?

Dental bone grafts are used to restore deficient areas, thereby creating implant placement possibilities which would otherwise be absent. We can also save teeth that have lost significant amounts of bone by regenerating your bone back. Getting your teeth the bone support they need!

After removal of teeth, the bone surrounding the missing tooth will resorb (i.e., shrink) resulting in a loss of both bone height and width. This loss of bone and gum tissue following a tooth extraction often results in both functional and cosmetic defects, leaving an unsightly collapsed appearance.

At Smile 360, Dr. Byars takes a proactive stance on bone preservation. Bone and gum tissue loss following teeth removal can either be greatly reduced or completely eliminated thanks to advances in bone graft procedures and bioengineering. Following a tooth extraction, a specially bioengineered dental bone graft material is placed within the extraction socket. The bone graft material not only supports new bone growth but also has been shown to preserve bone and overlying soft tissue following tooth removal.

What is the process of Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a safe procedure and we can discuss your options in-depth with you before surgery takes place to ensure you’re receiving the appropriate type of treatment for your needs. You’ll normally be given a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort while the procedure is taking place. Once the procedure is completed, you will be provided with antibiotics as well as medication for pain if required. You will be advised not to consume specific foods to avoid putting pressure on the graft. You should be able to carry on with your day-to-day life as normal while the bone graft is healing. Once the grafted bone has fused or become a robust part of the existing bone, your implants will be added.

Who is the typical candidate for Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is ideal for anyone wishing to add implants to their mouths but doesn’t currently have enough bone for them to be installed safely or securely.
