If you’re not currently a good candidate for dental implants, we may need to perform a sinus lift. During this procedure, we raise your sinus membrane. This then allows us to add the bone you need.
who's a good candidate for a sinus lift?
If you’re getting dental implants, there are several reasons why you may need to get a sinus lift as well:
You’ve experienced bone loss due to tooth loss or gum disease.
You were born with less bone due to a congenital defect.
You’ve lost your back upper molars, which usually have less bone than other parts of your mouth.
This is one of several treatments we offer to prepare patients’ mouths for dental implants. During your initial consultation, we will let you know if we believe you may benefit from other preparatory treatments, such as PRF.
what to expect from this procedure
Before your sinus lift, we will determine where to take the bone from. Recovery time will vary depending on how much bone you need. We will sit down with you to discuss the expected timeline.
