Sinus Lift

What is a Sinus Lift?

A sinus lift is required when there is insufficient bone in the pre-molar and molar region. Usually the first molar in each quadrant is where the sinus is at its lowest point of the maxilla (upper jaw). It may also be referred to as ‘sinus augmentation’ or a ‘sinus graft’. The need for a sinus lift will be due to bone deficiency due to tooth loss, periodontal disease or a naturally low lying sinus.

It’s typically performed in advance of implant placement surgery to allow time for bone healing. In some cases, both procedures may be done at the same time. While the need for this procedure is not uncommon, not all implants placed in this region will require it.
