Bye bye sinus lifts!
Have you been told by your conventional two piece implantologist that you are not a candidate for dental implants in the upper jaw because you do not have enough bone especially in the distal maxilla OR is he forcing you to undergo sinus lifts and augmentation since there is no bone to place dental implants.
When the upper grinding teeth are lost and are not replaced on time, it leads to drooping of the sinus there by resulting in bone resorption making it difficult for tooth replacement, Some conventional implantologists suggest Sinus lift procedure, which is a complex traumatic surgical approach, that is totally unpredictable and takes approximately 6 to 8 months to heal.All the patients interested in getting the upper full arch replaced on implants are suitable candidates for this as pterygoid bone is present in all the patients. Pterygoid bone is present distal to the second molar region in the upper jaw and is the only option available if you want to avoid cantilevers, but it requires a very experienced hand with an in depth knowledge of Anatomy of the surrounding areas.
LBR DENTAL & IMPLANT CENTER offers a unique and simple alternative i.e: TUBERO PTERYGOID implants. TUBERO PTERYGOID implants are placed in majority of cases using minimally invasive flapless procedure under local anaesthesia through the tuberosity bone into the PTERYGOID plates. Forces of occlusion go to the pterygomaxillary bone which is stable and cortical allowing immediate loading of implants. TUBERO PTERYGOID implants shortens the time for a definitive procedure on implants thus avoiding inconvenience of a post surgical treatment of sinus lift and low success rate of the implants integrated in the sinus lift and sinus augmentation procedure.
- Implants for everyone : As the PTERYGOID bone is always present.
- No cantilevers: As TUBERO PTERYGOID implants are placed in the distal most part of maxilla, all 14 teeth are replaced without cantilevers.
- Single piece implants : Hence no screw loosening and implant breakage.
- Efficient chewing : As all molars are replaced.
- Can avoid sinus lifts and augmentations.
- Allows immediate loading with fixed permanent teeth in 3 days.
