A sinus lift is a surgical procedure performed in order to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw and is sometimes necessary before getting dental implants on the upper jaw. If there is a significant amount of bone loss, the sinus will need to be moved up in order to make space for the bone graft. Sinus lifts are safe and effective and provide patients with a foundation for bone loss replacement that has been lost or is deficient in the sinus area (upper jaw). A sinus lift is a great option for those who are in need of dental implants, as it will ensure a strong and healthy bone to support the dental implants.
Some patients may be concerned about the process of sinus lifts; however, at the Oral Surgery Center, our team is here to make sure that you are completely comfortable throughout the entire procedure and you receive the best results possible. We have performed a great amount of sinus lifts and dental implants for our patients and have successfully resulted in healthy, functional, and beautiful smiles.
A sinus lift is usually performed when a patient has an inadequate amount of bone in the upper jaw in order to support the jaw implant. The sinuses are essentially empty air filled cavities on each side of the nose and can affect whether or not dental implants can be used to replace the missing back teeth in the upper jawbone. The jawbone in this area tends to be thinner than other areas throughout the jawbone and this can be for the following reasons: (1) there was never enough jawbone in the area to begin with, or (2) the jawbone has diminished due to missing natural teeth.
Whatever the reason may be, our team will be able to examine whether you are an ideal candidate for a sinus lift and can determine what your best option may be.
