Sinus augmentation is a technique used to raise the sinus floor so new bone can form allowing for the placement of a dental implant. Our oral surgeons will add bone between the jaw and maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To create enough room for the bone graft, the oral surgeons will move the sinus membrane upward.
You may also need a CT scan, which can be taken right in the comfort of our own office. The scan allows our oral surgeons to accurately measure the height and width of the existing upper jawbone and evaluate the health of the sinus cavity.
ClearCare Dental will be closed until April 30, except for emergencies.
If you have a dental emergency, please call our office and we will bring you in to take care of the issue.
Stay safe and we will see you soon.
