Regaining a healthy upper jaw
A sinus lift, or sinus augmentation, is a bone grafting procedure performed in your upper jaw. Our skilled oral surgeon may recommend this procedure before you can receive dental implants in your upper arch.
Sinus lifts help ensure that your upper jaw is strong and healthy so that you can regain your smile.
A healthier upper jaw for a healthier mouth, smile and life
The Benefits of Sinus Lifts
With over 20 years of experience in providing comfortable, effective and cutting-edge care, Dr. Daniel Brunner is your expert in biological oral surgery procedures. He will work one-on-one with you to help you improve your oral and overall health as well as your smile.
Sinus lifts are a type of bone grafting procedure used to restore healthy bone tissue in your upper jaw, usually in the area of the back teeth. When you lose a tooth in your upper jaw, there may not be enough bone tissue in the sinus region to place a dental implant. This tooth loss also leads to bone loss as the bone begins to resorb. Sinus lifts help you regain this bone tissue through a transplanted bone graft so that you can receive dental implants without any complications and once again enjoy a healthy and stable smile.
The bone grafting tissue used in your treatment is taken from your own body.
Sinus lifts are intended to support your teeth and implants for a lifetime.
Bone grafting material integrates with your jawbone to improve your overall health.
Sinus lifts integrate with your body.
Bone grafting material is transplanted from another area of your jaw or body into the sinus region. After your procedure the grafting material will integrate with your jawbone to increase bone density in the area and help you enjoy better results for your oral and overall health.
Sinus lifts and implant placement.
Your dental implants cannot be placed unless they have a stable foundation in your mouth. For implants that will be placed in your upper jaw, this often means that you need a sinus lift before you can receive implants. After the grafted material has meshed with the natural bone Dr. Brunner will be able to place your implants and fully restore your missing teeth, smile and quality of life.
Stable foundations for long-term health results.
A solid and secure foundation for your teeth not only ensures that they remain anchored in your mouth, but also helps your teeth and implants perform their proper functions. Your teeth and implants stimulate your supporting bone to keep it healthy and strong. A sinus lift provides the stable foundation, and after your entire bone grafting and implant treatment process is complete your teeth and implants will in turn work to produce long-term results for your overall health.
