Sinus Lift Procedures – Case study Ι
AFTER IMPLANT PLACEMENT
Final xray following implant placement. A sizable implant was placed (4.8mm x 12mm) and it is fully surrounded by bone as seen on the xray. The implant placement and the subsequent restoration of the area with an implant supported porcelain crown were made possible with the sinus lift procedure.
FOLLOWING SINUS LIFT PROCEDURE
Xray taken following the sinus lift procedure. Part of the sinus has been filled with bone graft. The grafted area is more radioopaque (appears more white on the xray due to the presence of bone graft).
Same xray as previously. Blue color represents the grafted area. Due to the significant increase in bone height an implant placement is now possible.
