Dental Sinus Lift in Midtown Atlanta & Roswell
Improve the success of your implant with a sinus lift
One of the most important factors in successful dental implant surgery is having sufficient bone where the implant will be placed.
Many people who need an implant in their upper jaw have insufficient bone to support the implant. In this case, a sinus lift may be necessary. This restorative surgical procedure makes it possible for you to get an implant even after suffering bone loss!
What is a sinus lift?
Sinus lift procedure can provide you with the best chance for a successful dental implant in the upper back jaw.
The upper back jaw is one of the most difficult areas to place an implant because it typically has lower bone quantity and is very close to the sinus.
The sinus system has several parts with the maxillary sinuses sitting closest to your teeth. During a sinus lift procedure, your maxillary sinus membrane is lifted upwards to make space for additional bone.
From there, bone is grafted to the upper jaw at the position of the molar or premolar teeth and given time to heal.
Who needs a sinus lift?
Our periodontists may recommend a sinus lift procedure if you have an inadequate amount of bone in the upper jaw. This includes situations where…
- Your jaw bone has previously been damaged
- You’ve suffered bone loss as a result of gum disease
- Your jaw bone has receded because of tooth loss (a process known as resorption)
- A cyst or tumor has been removed from the area
- You have a naturally large sinus cavity or thin jaw bone
