About the Procedure

A sinus lift1 osinus augmentation is a process that assists your body in rehabilitating a delicate area by restoring lost bone with your own natural bone. It is one of the most successful and predictable bone grafting procedures performed in the mouth. A sinus augmentation is often the first step toward a dental implant in the back of your upper jaw when there isn’t enough bone to securely place a dental implant. Dr. Leichter’s surgical approach2 will depend on your unique circumstances and expected outcome.

Who Is a Candidate?

When considering whether you are a good candidate for sinus lift surgery, Dr. Leichter will evaluate your medical history, as well as take X-rays and other images of your jawbone structure. This procedure is typically required when there isn’t enough bone height in the area of the upper molars or premolars – for example, if you have suffered bone loss due to advanced periodontal disease, tooth loss, trauma or have a large sinus cavity.

The Benefits of Dr. Leichter’s Sinus Lift

The primary benefit of a sinus lift3 is that it helps create a better platform for implants, allowing them to be securely placed and integrated with surrounding anatomical structures. It also reduces postoperative complications, such as infection and pain. Additionally, a sinus augmentation provides more options for restoration work and improves esthetics by creating a more natural contour in the upper arch. Lastly, it helps preserve the facial profile by promoting healthy gum tissue development around natural teeth and implants placed in the area after a sinus lift.
