Dentistry is a central component of any health and well-being plan. We know this better than anyone and can make it affordable to fit into any lifestyle and budget..
In the aesthetic zone (front teeth), the support of soft tissue and creation of an undetectable restoration, is very much enhanced when it can be managed beginning at the time of tooth loss. Any presurgical preparation necessary including periodontal and orthodontic procedures that create an improvement in the environment efore tooth removal should be considered.
In the case of the single missing anterior tooth, preparation of an ideal soft and hard tissue environment is technically difficult. In addition to soft tissue management, in order to create an undetectable restoration in the aesthetic zone, all of the components of shade (value, chroma and hue), translucency, contour, anatomy, texture and polish must be considered.
A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It's sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted." A sinus lift usually is done by a specialist. This could be either an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist.
What It's Used For?
A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:
Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.

When things go awry on the job, it's your health that can suffer. If you've been injured...
Until now, a two-stage method has to be selected for the surgical treatment of 3-dimensional bone defects. Initially, the bone defect is to be reconstructed and implants are not inserted after a healing period of 6 months.
At Smile Quest Dentists we employ a technique which allows bone augmentation and implantation to be performed simultaneously in a single procedure. The bone ring technique is applicable for almost all indications, including sinus floor elevation. The entire treatment time can be reduced by several months, a re-entry is not required.
Application of allogenic bone rings can omit the harvesting of autologous bone and thus, simplify the surgical procedure.
