Sinus Lift: Signs of Rupture and Risk of Infection?

Last Updated November 29, 2015

I recently had a sinus lift and two days later saw a blood clot with white particles about 6 hours after I blew my nose. Presumably the white particles were bone graft particles? I have left word for my periodontist, but I’m wondering if what I experienced indicates a failure of the procedure. Is this indicative of a rupture of the sinus membrane and is there a resulting risk of infection?
