Sinus Lift Bone Grafting in Portsmouth, NH
Our patient needed his six-year molar replaced. We routinely take a 3-dimensional image when we plan for implant placement. The virtual implant is in green on the image on the left. As you can see, more than half of the planned implant penetrated his sinus, so a bone graft (sinus lift) was necessary to provide enough bone for the entire implant. After we performed the sinus lift (visible on the image on the right), the planned implant is entirely housed in bone. Placing the implant will now be routine and highly predictable.
