Why Do I Need A Sinus Lift Procedure?
A Sinus Lift is often required as a first step when placing a dental implant in the back of your upper jaw. When upper back teeth are lost, bone in that area naturally shrinks or resorbs over time. Consequently, your sinus membranes expand to occupy the empty space where the bone used to be. When there is insufficient bone available to securely place a dental implant, the sinus membrane must be lifted in order to create space for placing additional bone in that area.
Not all patients are candidates for this procedure. Only your doctor can determine the treatment appropriate for your specific condition. Appropriate post-operative activities and restrictions will differ from patient to patient. Talk to your doctor about whether a sinus lift is right for you.
