Missing Teeth » Sinus Lift

Before an implant can be placed, some patients will require surgical preparation on the upper jaw to ensure there is enough bone tissue into which the implant can be secured.

If the upper jaw has no teeth for some time, the bone and surrounding tissues begin to disappear. If this occurs, there may not be sufficient levels of dense bone to place an implant. Fortunately with science advancing a great deal in this area the solution is to perform a sinus lift.

A sinus lift is an oral surgical procedure that extends into the sinus cavity above the jaw and packs bone graft material into this space. This graft material will be incorporated by the surrounding bone and form a solid structure very similar to bone. After a waiting period, the site will be checked and once an adequate bone density level is achieved your implant will be ready to be placed.
