Sinus Lift Surgery

A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed.

The posterior part of the upper jaw has traditionally been a challenging area to place dental implants due to the insufficient bone quantity and the proximity to the sinus cavity. The sinuses are two anatomical cavities full of air we all have above the posterior part of our upper jaw. Much like a balloon, these cavities are surrounded by a membrane and can change shape when teeth are lost.

If you have lost bone in the posterior part of the jaw due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or you have worn dentures for some time, you might not have enough bone to have dental implants. A sinus lift surgery, also called sinus elevation or sinus augmentation, can help raise the sinus floor to develop bone for the placement of dental implants.
