Sinus Lift Procedure
BEFORE AND AFTER
In this case study we are looking at a correction procedure from some poor implant dentistry. A low sinus floor can mean that there is little bone available to place implants. In this case, three poorly angled and short implants were placed but the result was very poor. The original implants you can see in the image on the left were too short and were poorly placed. They were un-restorable and could not support the implant crowns that were required.
A sinus lift procedure was carried out expertly by Dr. Wilson Grigolli in order to increase the amount of bone available. After about ten weeks of healing, three new Nobel Biocare implants were placed. Our superb dynamic navigation system ensured they were nicely parallel. They were easily restored and three implant crowns were placed.
