The sinus augmentation (BioOss) is very well ossified.
The volume of the augmentation remains constant in the first year postoperative and shows a remodeling in the following years. After some years the augmentation structure can hardly be differentiated any more radiologically from the surrounding bone.
The histology of a BioOss augmentation cylinder, nine months after sinus augmentation, shows how the BioOss particles are “ossified” without any signs of inflammation.
The picture gallery shows radiological progress checks on the sinus augmentation.
A scientific reappraisal is in preparation.
Most of the x-ray images shown here come from patients who were referred for a different maxillofacial implant procedure after sinus lift.
