  2. Screw retained – once implant is integrated in the bone, the upper crown or bridge is made with a screw access hole through whicha screw is used to tighten the crown to underlying bone. We don’t use glueing dental cements in this way.

Cement retained crowns has issue of excess cement flow between implant and the crown, which may lead to irritation/ inflammation around the implant gums . As screw retained crowns are tightened or fixed by screw so it escapes from glueing cement issue.

What is sinus lift surgery?

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."

What is the purpose of sinus lift surgery?

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone 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.
  • Bone may have been lost because of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.
  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus varies from person to person. The sinus also can get larger as you age.

Sinus lifts have become common during the last 15 years as more people get dental implants to replace missing teeth.
