A sinus lift is a surgical procedure in which our dentist will add bone tissue to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars. This is commonly done to prepare the space for dental implants. Sinus lifts are typically recommended for patients who have lost bone tissue in the upper jaw due to periodontal disease, injury or other issues.
The process for a sinus lift typically involves multiple appointments. During the first appointment, our dentist will evaluate the extent of bone loss and determine whether a sinus lift is necessary. If it is recommended, a plan will be developed based on your individual needs. The procedure itself involves making a small incision in the gum tissue, lifting the sinus membrane and adding bone tissue to the upper jaw. Patients will typically need to avoid chewing on the area for several weeks after the procedure to allow for proper healing.
If you think you may benefit from a sinus lift, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mark Jacobson today. Our team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and help you get the care you need.
