Sometimes, you may not have enough bone in the upper jaw in order for a dental surgeon to place dental implants. If this is the case, Dr. Clancy can perform a sinus graft (also known as sinus lift surgery).
Prior to the ability to perform sinus lift surgery, sometimes the only option that we could offer people who wanted to replace their missing teeth was dentures. Thanks to the sinus lift procedure, we can now create space for dental implants in people who may not have had enough jaw space to support implants.
If you’ve lost teeth and are interested in a sinus lift in order to have dental implants placed, please call Divine Smiles at (781) 396-8558 today. Our dentist can provide you with expert care.
