learn about the benefits of grafting
Bone grafting is an advanced procedure we use to rebuild lost bone in the jaw to increase a patient’s candidacy for replacing teeth with dental implants. Similar to natural teeth, dental implants require adequate bone for support, function, and stability. Bone grafting in Charleston, SC, rebuilds lost bone by using bone tissue from your own body or another biocompatible donor source.
If you have been told you do not qualify for implants due to bone loss, talk to our team today! Dr. Robert Carimi has advanced surgical skill and training in ridge augmentation and sinus lift bone grafting procedures and excels at preparing the jaw for lasting implant success.

BONE GRAFTING procedures
RIDGE AUGMENTATION rebuilds the bony arch (or foundation of your jaw), where tooth roots and dental implants anchor for support. We use advanced diagnostic CBCT imaging to gain a clear idea of your current bone health. From here, Dr. Carimi plans the precise locations for bone grafting within the arch and adds new bone tissue samples where bone loss has occurred. Over time, new bone integrates with the jaw to restore the bone height and volume needed for proper implant support. Ridge preservation is a similar bone grafting procedure we perform immediately following tooth extractions, to preserve the space for implant placement at a future time. With this type of bone grafting in Charleston, SC patients, Dr. Carimi adds bone directly to tooth sockets left in the arch by the roots of extracted teeth.
SINUS LIFTS are bone grafting procedures that enable the replacement of upper premolar and molar teeth with dental implants. When these teeth are lost, bone shrinkage and expansion of the sinus cavity diminish the amount of bone available for dental implants. Dr. Carimi uses a precision technique to elevate the floor of the maxillary sinus back into its natural position. He then adds bone grafting tissue in this newly created space to restore adequate bone height and volume. Over the next several months, the new bone integrates with the jaw to form a solid foundation for replacing upper teeth.

BENEFITS OF GRAFTING
Bone grafting increases implant candidacy, restores jaw contours, improves biting function, prevents shifting teeth, and maintains facial appearance to dramatically affect the outcome of success in dental implant surgery. Dr. Carimi employs either a Ridge Augmentation or Sinus Lift depending on where bone loss occurs using his expertise and 3D digital scans to guide him.

PLASMA RICH GROWTH FACTORS
Dr. Carimi is specially equipped to complete all phases of implant care, from implant preparation with tooth extractions and bone grafting to implant restorations. That’s why he also places an emphasis on the healing phase of your treatment. Dr. Carimi incorporates Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) into many of our bone grafting treatments. By using a small amount of your own blood, we are able to create a biological connector that helps fuse new bone graft material to your existing bone. Using PRGF from your own body during bone grafting treatments offers great advantages for your end results, reducing the risk of complications while encouraging new bone growth and faster healing.
