Preimplantation surgery refers to any surgical procedures performed before the actual placement of dental implants. These procedures are often necessary to prepare the patient’s oral structures and ensure a successful implantation process. Two common preimplantation surgeries are:

  1. Bone Grafting: If a patient has insufficient bone in their jaw to support a dental implant, a bone graft may be required. During this procedure, bone material is harvested from another part of the patient’s body or a synthetic bone substitute is used. The bone graft is then placed in the area of the jaw where the implant will be placed. Over time, the graft fuses with the existing bone, creating a sturdy foundation for the implant.
  2. Sinus Lift: A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation, is performed when the patient’s upper jaw lacks sufficient bone height for implant placement due to the expansion of the sinus cavity. During this procedure, the sinus membrane is lifted upward, and bone grafting material is placed beneath it, effectively increasing the bone height in the area. This creates a stable foundation for the dental implant in the posterior region of the upper jaw.

These preimplantation surgeries are typically performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons or periodontists who specialize in implant dentistry. It is important to have a comprehensive assessment by a specialist before proceeding with dental implant placement to determine if any preimplantation surgeries are necessary to ensure long-term success and stability of the implant.
