Here you can see where your sinus appears and what relation they have to your teeth

What Is a Sinus Lift?

A Sinus lift is a surgical procedure carried out by either a periodontist or a dentist who has had the sufficient training required for this procedure, where they will add bone in your upper jaw. This may be required in cases that do not have enough room for dental implants. There are sinuses in either side of the nose (known as maxillary), which may require the additional bone to be added in-between the jaw and maxillary. This procedure can also be called a “sinus augmentation”

Why Would I Need A Sinus Lift?

If you are thinking about having dental implants you may require a sinus lift to create enough space for the successful placement of the implants. This procedure will be required in the following situations:

There is not enough room above the premolar and molar due to the structure of the head.
If tooth loss has been over a long period of time causing the bone to fade away.
Periodontal disease has caused lose of bone.
As we age the sinuses get larger, meaning there could be less space to place implants.

What Are The Associated Risks With a Sinus Lift?

We always carry out all of our treatments carefully and thoroughly to ensure that any risks are minimal. There are a couple of risks that are associated with this procedure, for example:
This is quite an uncommon problem but there is still a small risk of infection with the sinuses or gums. But we do monitor our patients after treatment to ensure that they are fine and safe.
