Implant Planning and Sinus Lift Bone Grafting Guided by 3-D Cone Beam Technology in Portsmouth, NH
We plan all implant placement using 3-D (Cone Beam CT) imaging. This showed that our patient’s sinus was too close to the site of the planned upper molar implant (first image). This can be seen on the second image, where the green virtual implant enters the sinus for half of its length. After performing a sinus lift bone graft, our new plan (third image) shows abundant bone for the implant. Recent developments in imaging and bone grafting have made this process highly predictable, leaving out the guesswork of the past.
