What is a Sinus Lift?
What is a sinus lift?

Your sinus is an air filled sac held up by the roots of your back upper teeth. Over time after a tooth is extracted the sinus lowers into the area previously occupied by the roots. To place an Implant this space needs to be reclaimed. With bone graft material the sinus is pushed back up allowing for Dental Implant placement.

What is Gum Surgery or Osseous Surgery?
What is Gum Surgery?

Osseous surgery is used to access tarter and pathologic bacteria in areas deep underneath the gums that conventional cleanings can't reach.

 

Once accessed the tarter, bad bacteria, and inflammed tissue are removed and the bone previously destroyed by the bacteria is reshaped to proper form.
