Sinus augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the bone volume in the upper jaw, specifically the area between the maxillary sinuses and the jawbone. For all-on-4 in the upper jaw, adequate bone height is crucial for implant stability.
A sinus augmentation is often required when there is insufficient vertical bone height due to the proximity of the sinus cavities. This procedure lifts the sinus membrane and adds bone graft material to create a stable foundation for dental implants, making all-on-4 restoration possible.
The all-on-4 dental implant system represents a revolutionary approach to full-arch tooth replacement, offering numerous benefits for those facing extensive tooth loss.
