Dental implants are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. There are a few ways to insert implants, which will be determined patient to patient based on your individual oral history and health needs. Implants are typically made of titanium and can replace one, multiple, or all of your teeth. After an implant has been placed and enough time has passed for the healing process, a porcelain crown is attached to the top of each implant so that they look and function just like your natural teeth!
A Sinus Lift is necessary when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, and not enough room to place dental implants. Your sinus membrane has to be lifted, to add room for new bone to be placed in between your jaw and sinuses.
