What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that is typically performed when there is a loss of bone in your upper jaw near your sinuses. In some cases, there isn’t enough bone under the upper sinus to place an implant, so a sinus lift is necessary before an implant is placed. During this procedure, the sinus membrane is lifted to make enough room for a bone graft. The bone graft then adds more bone to your jaw to make it strong enough to support the implant.
Benefits of a Sinus Lift
Sinus lifts are most commonly used to add more bone height and width to the upper jaw to replace any loss of bone. Sinus lift restore your jawbone and make it suitable for dental implant therapy.
