Bone and Sinus Grafting

Case 1

Description of Treatment: This patient lost his four front teeth in the upper jaw over 40 years ago. Since then he had been wearing a partial denture. In that period he incurred significant bone loss in the area where the teeth were missing.

After a clinical assessment that included photographs and x-rays, the following treatment plan was carried out:
  1. A bone graft was placed to increase the amount of bone in the jaw which could then support dental implants.
  2. Some months later when the new bone had integrated with his existing jawbone 4 dental implants were placed.
  3. When the implants had integrated with the jaw bone new teeth were attached to the dental implants restoring his smile and removing the need for a denture.
