Sinus augmentation

Dental Impalnt dentist surrey kingston surbiton - sinus augmentation -Surbiton Smile Centre

The major element in implant success is the quantity and quality of the jawbone where the implant is to be placed.

The maxillary sinuses are located in the cheekbones below your eyes. Tooth loss below the sinus leads to bone loss and over time the sinus will expand into the area previously occupied by bone and teeth, which in turn creates the problem of not having enough bone to place the implants.

If dental implant is placed into inadequate bone, it will move, shift, and fail because there isn’t enough stability to withstand forces of biting and chewing.

Sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.

Over time, the implant and substitute bone will heal, creating a strong bond and stable foundation for your new replacement teeth.
