Sinus Lift

What Is Sinus Lift?

A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation or sinus elevation, is a surgical procedure that involves adding bone to the upper jaw in the area of the premolar and molar teeth. The goal of a sinus lift is to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw in order to support dental implants.

A bone sinus lift specifically refers to a type of sinus lift that involves adding bone material to the sinus cavity, which is located above the upper teeth and below the eye sockets. In some cases, the natural bone in the upper jaw may not be thick enough to support an implant, which can cause the implant to fail. A bone sinus lift can help create a more stable foundation for the implant by adding bone to the area.
