Sinus Augmentation with
Sinus Membrane Removal
Over the years of using this methodology when a sinus membrane cannot be utilized, we have had no implant failures and no post operative complications. As a result, we are now removing the sinus membrane for all sinus augmentation surgeries. The simplicity of this methodology reduces the level of skill required to perform predictable sinus augmentation, shortens the time required to perform the surgery, and significantly reduces post-op morbidity. The time between grafting and implant placement and restoration is dependent on the amount of residual crestal bone, but in most cases the implants can be restored in 3 months.
