    Bone Augmentation (bone build up)

    When teeth have been missing for some time the bone and gums can begin to change shape. This can affect surrounding teeth.

    Sinus lifts

    Sinuses are cavities inside the structure of our skull. When we lose a tooth, the bone around the root area starts to recede. This can lead to the sinus expanding into the tooth root area. If you choose to have an Implant there may not be sufficient bone to support it. Special material can be inserted to encourage bone re-growth and 'lift' the sinus. Over time, the bone will re-grow providing enough bone to support the Implant.
