Chris had a very unique situation. He had an unusual dental implant placed 10 years ago that needed to be replaced. A sinus bone graft was necessary in order for me to not penetrate the sinus that sits above the upper back teeth

Here was his situation in pictures. The original implant had lost almost all of its bone. It was a bit large and placed in an unusual manner. His sinus which was right above the implant, was touching the implant.
I removed the implant and did a sinus bone graft to make sure we had plenty of bone to anchor the new implant. I also want to try to correct the bone loss on the tooth behind the implant. Note the tremendous gain in bone height!
The implant was placed using IV sedation for all of the procedures:
I made him a new tooth on the dental implant that now fits the way it should.
Chris and I were very happy with the final results. Thank you Chris…It was a pleasure to be able to help you get your smile back!
