About the Procedure

A Sinus Lift1 is a process that assists your body in rehabilitating a delicate area by restoring lost bone with your own natural bone. A Sinus Lift is one of the most successful and predictable bone grafting procedures performed in the mouth. A Sinus Lift is often required as a first step when placing a dental implant2 in the back of your upper jaw. When upper back teeth are lost, bone in that area naturally shrinks or resorbs over time. Consequently, your sinuses expand to occupy the empty space where the bone used to be. Because there is insufficient bone available to securely place the dental implant, the sinuses must be lifted in order to create space for placing additional bone in that area.
