Mount Hope Dental | Sinus Lift Procedure in Mount Hope


Sinus Lift Procedure

A sinus lift procedure may be necessary when replacing an upper tooth with an implant. On some patients, the sinus cavity dips down between the roots of the upper teeth, not allowing enough height for an implant to be placed. When the tooth is extracted or just before the implant is placed, the sinus membrane is lifted and bone grafting material is packed in that area. This process, called a sinus lift, allows for more vertical height of bone for proper implant placement. The radiographs below show cases at Mount Hope Dental where the sinus was lifted prior to implant placement.
