Streamlining my patient’s dental implants by reducing time, number of visits and cost are important to me.
The sinus lift bone graft is an extremely common procedure that I do in my office. In fact, I am one of the few in the world to be trained by the inventor of this procedure. Hilt Tatum first performed this procedure 36 years ago!
The procedure is exclusively used to build bone height in the back part of the upper jaw for dental implants. When teeth are lost, the sinus bone expands making the bone small for implants of adequate length.
Although the sinus bone graft is common and is necessary in many situations, this video describes three ways to possibly avoid it all together! These really do work!
