Do You Need A Sinus Lift?
Sinus lift surgery is a bone graft procedure performed to prepare a site for a dental implant in the upper jaw. Sometimes, when a client has elected to have a dental implant, it may be necessary to have a sinus lift performed before insertion of the implant.
There may be several reasons why clients will have to undergo a sinus lift procedure. It could be that there are anatomical structures, such as the client having a small jaw, or a large sinus, or a combination of the two resulting in little room for implant insertion. It could be that the client has suffered extensive bone loss to the degree that a bone graft is necessary to build up the jawbone so that the dental implant will be fixed securely.
