Sinus Lift Surgery



Sinus lift is a surgery that adds bones to your upper jaw when you have insufficient bone in your premolar and molar region for the placement of dental implants. It is done by lifting the membrane of the maxillary sinus followed by placement of bone grafts. Bone formation takes about a period of 6 months, when sufficient bone is formed in that region, regular dental implants are placed in the newly formed bone.
