Our team at Precision Periodontics & Dental Implants is pleased to offer a variety of oral and maxillofacial procedures, including sinus lifts, to help our patients have effective oral health. Our team may need to perform a sinus lift if you have experienced bone loss in the upper jaw, your jawbone doesn’t have enough height or the sinuses are too close to each other to allow for another procedure. A sinus lift is performed to add more bone density to the upper jaw where the molars and premolars are located.
The goal of a sinus lift procedure is to grow the bone structure located in your maxillary sinus, which is an empty space on the upper teeth behind your cheeks. Your sinuses rest on each side of your nose above your upper jawbone, and tooth loss in this area can lead to a lack of bone structure around the sinuses, preventing the placement of a dental implant. When performing the sinus lift, our professionals can build up the bone structure by adding a grafting material where the sinus was. This allows us to follow up with dental implant placement later on to restore missing teeth.
Not only can we provide sinus lifts for patients who would benefit from the procedure, but we are highly experienced in after-treatment care and recovery, and can ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible.
