sinus lifts & bone grafts
"By far the best dental practice I have been to, from the reception staff to the hygienist and especially my Dentist Dr Mahesh Patel. I have always been a very nervous patient but he just has a way of really calming my nerves and really takes the time to put me at ease before he starts the treatment..."

Dental Implants & Techniques » Sinus Lift
Have you worn dentures in your upper jaw for years? Did you know that there's an alternative, more comfortable option?
If you've worn dentures for an extended period of time in your upper jaw, the bone will have receded, rendering it difficult to undergo implant treatment and giving your face a sunken appearance. A sinus lift makes use of the contours of your face to provide a second chance at the functionality and reliability of dental implants.
Prior to the procedure, a number of tests will be run to ensure the suitability of the sinuses, which may include panoramic radio scans and CT scans.
Similarly to a bone graft procedure, there are several options for the new bone material: from the patient, from other tissue sources (human or animal), or synthetic. Your dentist will advise which will be best for you.
The sinus lift procedure will be performed by the dentist while you are under general anaesthetic.
After a period of time, the site will be healed and ready for implants.
A sinus lift is a safe and clinically proven procedure and when completed with expertise and care it will provide the best, most stable base for life changing implant surgery. As with any surgical procedure, at our practice we ensure that you understand all aftercare instructions and we will check back with you regularly to ensure that the healing is going smoothly.
A more youthful appearance will give you more confidence.
A second chance at the comfort and security of dental implants.
A long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.
Dental Implants & Techniques » Bone Grafts
Those who have worn dentures for years are likely to have suffered bone loss. This does not mean you are unable to receive dental implants; you can still have successful implant surgery through a clinically proven procedure called bone grafting.
Bone loss is bad news, not only for your teeth, but also for the facial structure. If a tooth is lost and not quickly replaced with a dental implant, over time the bone behind it will recede and give the face a sunken appearance. Bone grafts revitalise and rejuvenate the face while providing the best possible foundation for implant treatment.
Bone for a graft is usually taken from your chin or hip in a routine operation procedure, usually in a hospital. Your own tissue is most likely to be successful, but other human or animal sources can be used. In some cases, synthetic material may be the best option.
Our dentist will insert this bone expertly into your jaw. The reallocated bone will mesh seamlessly into the surrounding tissue over a period of time.
Once healed, the implant site will be as strong as natural bone and you'll be ready for implants.
We know that just like any surgical procedure, a bone graft can be daunting. We are more than happy to talk you through your procedure step by step and work out the best arrangement for you. We'll always make sure you're fully aware of every option and comfortable with your informed decisions before moving forward.
