Patients who require dental implant treatment may not always have adequate jaw bone density or width needed for implants to be placed.

The better the bone density and width the more stable the dental implants will be, ensuring their longevity. Fortunately, a number of techniques have been developed that can strengthen the implant site before the surgery takes place. One such method is bone expansion.

  1. This advanced surgical procedure is designed to expand the area in the jaw where an implant needs to be placed using a series of instruments.

  2. These instruments carefully expand the walls of the bone that form the prospective implant site, such as in the front of the upper jaw.

  3. A small hole is first drilled though the centre of the selected area, which is then filled with bone, or an implant can be immediately inserted into the space. The enlarged surface area created allows for a firm foundation into which an implant can be placed.

Depending on the available jaw bone, a bone graft may be done in conjunction with the bone expansion procedure. Bone graft material can either consist of manufactured crystals that match bone structure, animal bone or autogenous bone, which is harvested from certain sites in the patient’s body.
