To be successful long-term, dental implants must be placed in dense, strong, healthy bone. Patients who have sustained bone deterioration due to gum disease or prolonged tooth loss may require a procedure to restore lost bone and overall oral health.
At our Orlando, FL, practice, Dr. Alfredo M. Gapuz can perform a sinus lift for patients who lack the jawbone tissue to improve your candidacy for implants. During this procedure, the sinus membrane is gently raised to its proper position and bone grafting material is placed to properly accommodate implant posts. Dr. Gapuz offers oral conscious sedation, as well as the all-natural NuCalm™ system, to help you feel relaxed during the sinus lift procedure.
