What is a Sinus Lift?

A Sinus Lift is Surgical procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your premolars and molars. It's sometimes called a Sinus Augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. This procedure can be done by one of our Periodontists.

A sinus lift is performed when there is not enough bone height in your upper jaw area, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for Dental Implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:

  • You may have lost bone due to Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)

  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. Each person has a different shape and size. The sinus can also change as you age.

  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If your teeth have been missing for a long time, there may not be enough space to place an Dental Implant.

  • Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.

Sinus lifts have become very common among the population during the last 15 years as more people get Dental Implants to replace missing teeth. Below there re two types of Sinus Lifts using 3D Bond. Brought to you by Augma Products.
