Sinus Augmentation: As we age, the air spaces – called sinuses – in our upper jaw expand downward. A key to implant success is the bone’s quantity and quality at the implant placement site. Bone grafting of the sinus can reverse the effects of aging by rebuilding any missing bone. This allows for dental implant placement to replace missing upper back teeth.
Ridge Modification: Deformities of the jaws occur due to infection, trauma, and tooth loss. These can result in inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. To correct this problem, the gum is lifted away from the ridge to expose the bone. The area is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build back the volume of bone.

Dental Bone Reconstruction Procedure Process
"Dr. Korn and his staff are absolutely fantastic. I was referred to Dr. Korn by Dr. Upen J Patel when I needed a front tooth implant due to a failing root canal after 20 years. To say that they did stellar work would be an understatement. Considering that a front upper tooth is quite a difficult tooth to match in terms of size, shape, color and placement, between he and Dr. Patel I don't think they could have nailed it any better!"

Benefits of Dental Bone Reconstruction
- One of the primary benefits of a dental bone reconstruction restoring the facial and jawbone that is essential to normal bite and helps prevent other dental diseases from occurring.
- Dental bone reconstruction allows for missing teeth to be properly replaced with a dental implant.
- When a tooth is lost or affected by periodontal disease the bone can begin to diminish and impact the rest of the jaw. Dental bone reconstruction restores and prevents further bone atrophy.
