A sinus lift is a relatively commonplace procedure necessary in patients who need dental implants in their upper arch, but who lack the bone volume to support the implant posts in the molar area.
Moorestown, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2018
Having worked in the dental industry for a combined 50+ years, Drs. Mario J. Canal and Ben Calem are actively focused on helping patients seeking dental implants in Moorestown and Medford, NJ and the surrounding region, understand the realities of this procedure. Their educational outreach includes bringing about awareness to sometimes necessary preliminary protocols, including bone grafting and sinus lifts.
A sinus lift is a relatively commonplace procedure necessary in patients who need dental implants in their upper arch, but who lack the bone volume to support the implant posts in the molar area. Without adequate bone in this area, implant posts are not able to be securely held in place, thus increasing the chance of failure.
Typically, lack of bone volume comes directly from losing teeth. Without tooth roots to stimulate the jaw bone, it begins to deteriorate. Other causes of lack of bone material in the upper jaw can be linked to osteoporosis, trauma to the jaw, and genetics. However, bone loss in the upper jaw can be remedied through the sinus lift grafting treatment option.
Both Drs. Canal and Calem have the expertise to perform this in-office operation that moves the sinus cavity upwards, allowing a space for bone grafting material to be inserted. After several months, the new bone is strong enough to allow for dental implantology. From that point, dental implants can be secured to the arch, providing immediate aesthetic and functional enhancement.

Canal and Calem encourage patients with or without a referral from a general dentist to contact their Moorestown office at 856-439-1200 and 609-953-3700 for the Medford practice.
