The posterior maxilla can be a challenging site for placing dental implants. Often there is a lack of initial bone height after extractions and rapid bone resorption of the bone can occur due to diminished bone density. Most dentists and surgeons would advocate a lateral sinus lift to compensate for this condition, which adds significant cost and time to the implant process.
Dr Reisman has developed expertise with Trans-Alveolar Sinus Lifts, using your existing bone to successfully place functional dental implants. This technique is safe, predictable, relatively painless, and does not require additional cost of a sinus lift.
