Sinus Augmentation in Tampa
A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root which is attached to the jaw bone. Eventually, a replacement tooth or bridge will be firmly fixed to this root, restoring complete function to the tooth. The key to a successful and long-lasting implant is the quality and quantity of jawbone to which the implant will be attached. If bone has been lost due to injury or periodontal disease, a sinus augmentation can raise the sinus floor to allow for new bone formation.
Sinus augmentation has been shown to increase the success of dental implant procedures. Dr. Brian van Aelst is an expert in sinus augmentations, having performed hundreds of successful sinus lifts.
