Sinus Lift

Another bone graft procedure is called a sinus lift (or elevation) which reduces the size of the maxillary sinus cavity above your back teeth on the upper jaw. This procedure is carried out when the back part of the upper jaw does not have enough bone to allow implants to be placed.

Your dentist will assess your jaw bone to see whether a lift is needed and, if there is less than 5mm of bone, graft in bone to allow for the placement of implants.

The procedure involves your dentist accessing the sinus cavity via a small surgically created window above the jaw inside the mouth and then packing it very carefully with bone graft material. Over time, the graft material will be incorporated by the surrounding bone and harden, and once there is adequate bone density your implant can be placed.

A Sinus Lift is often performed first, with any implants being added at a later date. However, it is sometimes possible to place the implants at the same time, saving you a return trip. Your dentist will evaluate your clinical needs and discuss all possibilities with you.
