Dental implants are an amazing form of dental technology! And for many, they’re the best smile solution out there. Not only are they long-term but they provide a natural-looking restoration. However, one of the hardest spots to place a dental implant is in the upper, back jaw, making a sinus lift necessary.
What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift is an oral procedure that allows our oral surgeon to add bone to your upper jaw. We add the bone in between your jaw and the sinuses after removing sinus tissue. This is the “lift” and makes it possible to place dental implants in an otherwise tricky area.
Why Do I Need a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift can be beneficial is an array of situations! It is used for the preparation of the mouth for restoration purposes. Dr. Montamarta may suggest a sinus lift if:
You have lost teeth and don’t have enough bone for implants
You have lost bone due to periodontal disease
You have long-term tooth loss that has led to bone degeneration
