The procedure involves using special instruments to deliver and condense synthetic or sterile harvested bone material through the opening into the sinus. As the bone graft is delivered into the sinus, it gently lifts the membrane upward as it begins to occupy the space. Once the bone graft is placed, the implant is placed along with a special healing cap, and the area is allowed to heal. During this time, the synthetic material solidifies around the implant and permanently blends into the natural bone tissue. After the site has fully healed, the bone will have regained its original strength and stability, and the replacement tooth can be loaded onto the implant. With the implant placement complete, your tooth is restored to ideal shape and function.
