Sinus Membrane Removal for Successful Subantral Sinus Augmentation
Post op ct scan. Bone covers the implant.
With SteinerBio bone grafts, the bone in the sinus will remodel until load is sensed by the bone. Any extra bone in the sinus will be eventually resorbed. This is opposed to traditional grafts that never remodel or resorb.
In this case, the graft and implant were placed with no sinus membrane covering the bone graft. The graft material will set in approximately 30 minutes and as bone grows into the graft, the sinus membrane grows from the peripheral bone over the graft.
After successful cancer therapy, the patient wanted to proceed with replacement of tooth #15. However, as was the case with the upper right, the membrane was also lost when attempting to elevate the membrane and the membrane was again removed and the site grafted with Sinus Graft and the implant was placed.
