ADVANCED ORAL SURGERY
MAXILLARY SINUS ELEVATION
Maxillary sinus elevation is a surgery that allows the placement of dental implants when there is not enough bone height in the back of the upper jaw.
To do this, synthetic bone mixed with autologous bone taken from the same area is placed. Your body will replace the synthetic bone with your own bone at a rate of 1 mm per month. After 6 months, you will have enough bone to place implants.
In some cases, when there is a minimum amount of bone, it is possible to perform a maxillary sinus lift and place the dental implant simultaneously
Bone grafting is a filling material (artificial or autologous) that is placed in the jaws when, due to different pathologies, this bone has been lost and it is necessary to restore it.
What is intended with this filling is to induce the regeneration of the existing bone entering directly in the affected areas that require support for further treatment. It is especially useful when a person has little bone and wishes to place a dental implant.
We have several techniques to regenerate your bone, from taking bone particles from another part of the mouth to using animal bone substitutes, which are totally biocompatible with the human body.
Oral surgery is a specialty of dentistry that surgically treats diseases or defects of the teeth and gums.
Among the most frequent treatments in this area we can find gum grafts, gingivectomies, apicoectomy, wisdom tooth extractions or canine fenestrations.
