Sinus Lifts

A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, is a specialized procedure that helps create a solid foundation for dental implants by adding bone to the upper jaw. This treatment is particularly beneficial if you have experienced bone loss or have insufficient bone height in your upper jaw, ensuring a stable and successful implant placement.

What a Sinus Lift Can Help With

Sinus lifts are designed to address several issues, such as:

  • Insufficient bone for upper jaw implants
  • Bone loss from gum disease or tooth extraction
  • Preparing the jaw for future dental implants
  • Improving sinus position for implant placement

By increasing the amount of bone in your upper jaw, a sinus lift can enhance your eligibility for dental implants and restore your smile’s function and appearance.

The Sinus Lift Process

The process of a sinus lift begins with a consultation, where our dentists will evaluate your needs and determine the best approach. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the upper jaw, and bone material is added to the sinus cavity. The graft integrates with your natural bone over time, creating a solid foundation for implants. Recovery time varies, but most patients can resume normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Benefits of Sinus Lifts

Choosing a sinus lift offers several benefits, including:

  • Enhanced stability for dental implants
  • Improved jawbone structure and strength
  • Increased eligibility for upper jaw implants
  • Long-lasting results and improved oral health
