Bone Graft

Bone graft Is a surgical procedure to rebuild bone loss in the jaw. If you are missing a tooth or bone, a bone graft is used to reconstruct bone structure. The healing process takes form three to four months for you new bone to fuse completely. ( Everyone’s body is different, may take more time to heal)

Sinus Lift

Your surgeon will cut the gum tissue, the tissue is raised, exposing the bone. A small window is opened to push up your sinus. Closing the window your surgeon places bone, and a membrane to be able to place your implant. Why you might need a sinus lift? If teeth have been missing for a long time, led to bone loss, which sometimes makes the maxillary sinus lower to the gum line.
