Tooth loss is always an oral health issue, but tooth loss in the upper jaw can cause unique complications when placing dental implants. But our periodontists, Drs. John Thousand and Robert Thousand, can prepare your upper jaw for dental implants by using a sinus lift in St. Augustine and Palm Coast, Florida. This procedure involves raising the sinus cavity and adding bone grafting material to create the bone tissue needed for a successful implant placement.
