Picture Series -Sinus Lift Bone Graft for Dental Implants

This is a CT scan image showing a hollow sinus on your right where my patient from Los Angeles was missing her two upper molars. She does not have enough bone so she will need a sinus lift bone graft.

This panoramic x-ray was taken a few months after the sinus lift bone graft.  She only used tylenol for the pain afterward! The graft adds significant bone to allow for longer dental implants.
