    I had a sinus lift bone graft and implant that all done at the same time. Fairly complex upper jaw sever degradation of the jaw to boot. I was on a flight for a dive trip the day I was released to dive by my dentist which was I think 90 days from the actual procedure. Everything went just fine.

    I’m sitting in the airport on a dive trip right now new tooth in place I’m like a real boy again. Had to remold my mouth piece to work with more teeth:)

    There will be a tiny airpocket between the post and the bone. However, that is of no concern as that airspace doesn't communicate with the outside world. Two tooth implants here.

    Very similar to my circumstances as well, only I had two separate 90 day windows.

    Congratulations!
