The rapidly developing field of bone augmentation has opened up many new possibilities. A typical case is a missing upper end tooth, where an implant is particularly indicated because no other fixed prosthesis or bridge is possible, but the jawbone has atrophied. Here the jawbone can be extended into the sinus so as to support an implant.
The surgery is done under local anaesthetic. An incision is made in the soft tissue to open up an aperture in the bony wall of the sinus. This allows entry to the sinus cavity, where the lining is detached and the resulting space filled with synthetic bone and covered with membrane. Finally, the soft tissue is stitched back into place.
Sometimes it is possible to insert the implant together with the bone augmentation procedure, but in other cases it is necessary to wait 6-9 months for the wound to heal.
The intervention is painless, but there is a strict set of aftercare procedures to be followed. This involves cooling the area around the wound for up to 10-15 minutes, several times a day. Proper oral hygiene is essential, and particular care in cleaning the surgical site.
