Sinus Lifts

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that is performed in the maxillary (upper jaw) region to increase the amount of bone available for dental implant to be placed. This procedure may be necessary when there is insufficient bone height due to the location of the maxillary sinus. —

Sinus lift procedures are often considered as a result of periodontal disease, trauma, or long-term denture use.

What is a Sinus Lift procedure like?

During the procedure, the sinus membrane is gently lifted, and a bone graft material is placed into the sinus cavity. This stimulates the growth of new bone, which will then fuse with the existing bone to create a stronger, more stable foundation for dental implants.

A sinus lift is typically performed by an oral surgeon or a periodontist, and is often done in conjunction with dental implant surgery. It is a safe and effective way to restore missing teeth in the upper jaw, and can improve both the function and aesthetics of the smile.
