What is the Process of Getting a Sinus Lift?

Sinus lift surgery has been shown to increase the chances for successful implants for years to come. First, the surgeon will cut the gum tissue. Next, the tissue is raised, exposing the bone underneath. The surgeon then cuts a small circle in the bone and then lifts the bony piece into the sinus cavity space, filling the hole with a bone graft. The incision is then closed, and the healing process begins. In approximately 4-12 months after your sinus lift, your implants will be placed. The time in between allows the new bone to merge correctly with your existing bone. The time between your sinus lift, and getting your dental implant, depends on how much bone you needed.

If you require dental implants but do not have enough upped jawbone for the implant to anchor to, a sinus lift may be the answer.
