Bone Graft Sinus Lifts
I currently have 4 upper mini implants with a "snap-on denture". It's not working very well so I've decided to do 6 traditional (big) implants and then a fixed hybrid bridge.
The oral surgeon I consulted with seemed to think there was no question I would have to have a sinus lift done on both sides first, heal for a while, and then do the implants. I assume this is because I've had the mini's (I've only had them for 7 months).
Has anyone else ever had this done or is there a Dr out there that knows anything about this? The dentist that referred him said he was the best in the area and I drove 120 miles to see him. I hate the thought of trying to go somewhere else for another consult, this whole thing is getting exhausting and VERY expensive.
