SINUS LIFT SURGERY
Sometimes there is not enough space between the jaw and the sinus to place a dental implant. This can be caused by a loss of teeth in the upper jaw, periodontal disease and natural maxillary sinus position and size. As dental implants have become the common remedy to replacing missing teeth, dentists have had to find a way to minimize the gap between sinus and jaw. The sinus lift adds bone to the upper jaw by lifting upward the sinus membrane.
