Sinus Lift Procedur

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that helps prepare your jawbone for dental implants. It’s needed when the jawbone has shrunk or is too thin to support an implant.

Here’s what happens during the procedure:

– We numb the area with local anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain.
– We make a small incision in the gum to access the jawbone.
– We gently lift the sinus membrane (a thin layer of tissue) that separates the jawbone from the sinus cavity.
– We add bone graft material to the lifted area to increase the height and density of the jawbone.
– We close the incision with sutures.

The goal of a sinus lift is to:

– Create enough bone height and density for a dental implant
– Ensure a secure and stable foundation for the implant
– Help restore your natural smile and chewing function

The procedure usually takes about 1-2 hours, and you might experience some swelling and discomfort afterward. But don’t worry, we’ll provide pain medication and instructions to help you recover smoothly.
