Prepare for Your New Smile With a Sinus Lift

Your sinus lift is likely part of a treatment plan that will help you gain dental implants. It raises the sinus area to create more room in your upper jaw for the artificial tooth roots. It also adds bone density, so your jaw is strong enough to support implants. Your dentist will perform an exam to determine your readiness for implants. Before we proceed with your sinus lift and implant placement, we’ll use CBCT technology and digital X-rays to plan your treatment. This allows us to determine the most appropriate approach for your specific needs.

Your dentist may use one of the following sinus lift techniques:

  • Vertical Sinus Lift – This is a minimally invasive approach if you don’t need as much of the sinus area raised. It’s typically performed simultaneously with implant placement, making it a streamlined procedure.
  • Lateral Sinus Lift – This procedure involves carefully moving the sinus upward through a small opening in the jawbone. It creates room for bone grafting material to be placed, so you can obtain your implants.

Our office has private patient rooms to provide a calm and welcoming environment. You can ask any questions you may have with complete confidence. Sedation is also available if you’d like.

Depending on the type of sinus lift you receive, there may be a period of healing required before your implants are placed. Once you receive these artificial tooth roots, you’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of your new teeth.
