Sinus Lift surgery

A sinus lift, also referred to as a sinus augmentation, is performed by an oral surgeon to add bone mass to the upper portion of your jaw for patients but do not have enough bone mass in the jaw above the molars and premolars to support an implant.

What is Sinus Lift Surgery & Who is it for ?

A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. If you’ve lost bone in the upper back jaw area due to reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss, you may be left without enough bone to place implants. Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.

Undergoing sinus lift surgery has been shown to greatly increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come. Many patients experience little to minimal discomfort during this procedure.
