Sinus Lifts

As part of planning for future placement of dental implants, sinus lifts or sinus augmentation procedures increase the amount of bone in the upper jawbone. Causes of lowering of the sinus include periodontal disease, trauma, and long-term tooth loss that’s gone too long without treatment. There are other reasons for this surgical procedure and we perform them in office for patients that can benefit from them. In the case of dental implants, a sinus lift ensures a secure place for the implants as it also protects the sinus.
