Sinus Lift

The sinus lift or sinus lift graft procedure is a relatively common form of oral plastic surgery that is designed to increase the height of the maxillary bone so that further reconstructive work, such as dental implants can be done. The maxillary sinuses are located behind the cheekbones and run from under the eyes to the area just above the upper back teeth.

Very frequently the roots of the upper back teeth will protrude into these sinuses. Then when one or more of these teeth need to be removed there is not much supportive bone left between the maxillary sinus and the mouth. This is a problem for dentists and their patients because it means there is very little natural bone in which to anchor a dental implant.

In the sinus lift procedure the periodontal or other surgeon enters the sinus from the location of the missing upper tooth or teeth. The sinus membrane is then gently manipulated upward after which a bone grafting material is placed at the base of the sinus. When there is sufficient bone present between the jaw and the bottom of the sinus the periodontist can proceed immediately to placing a dental implant.
