BONE GRAFTS AND SINUS LIFTS

In order to restore missing teeth areas with dental implants, enough volume of bone must be present to ensure their long term stability and success. If, for instance, you lose an upper molar tooth and your maxillary sinus is enlarged, a bone graft is needed to provide extra stability for the dental implant. A digital panoramic film and/or a CT scan of your jaw prior to dental implant placement will determine whether a bone graft and/or sinus lift is needed.
