If the bone in your upper back jaw has deteriorated, or if you have had a tooth extracted from that area, a sinus lift can be a terrific option to help stop bone loss in the sinus area.
What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift, or sinus augmentation, is basically the same procedure as a bone graft, but because of the location, the procedure is a little bit more complex. Sometimes the area that requires grafting can be accessed from inside the mouth. Other times an external access point needs to be made. We will discuss your needs and options with you and find the best, most comfortable, and most convenient way to place your graft. And don’t forget, we have the best sedation methods and anesthetics to keep you completely relaxed and pain-free.
