Raise the Sinus Cavity to Improve Success of Dental Implants
Tooth loss is always troublesome, but when it occurs at the top of your mouth near the sinuses it presents a new challenge when placing dental implants. Many times, this area has insufficient bone levels to support dental implants. In this case, Dr. John Thousand offers a procedure called a sinus lift, to gently raise the sinus cavity and add bone grafting material to create the sufficient amount of bone for successful implant placement.
Signs You May Need a Sinus Lift
- Missing or extracted upper teeth
- Bone loss due to periodontal disease
- Facial or oral trauma
- Inadequate bone levels
- Low positioning of sinus
- A large sinus cavity
