Sinus  Lift or Sinus Augmentation

What is a Sinus?

The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. These sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone. We can augment the bone in this area. There are two ways to do this on is the Osteotome Sinus Lift and the other is the Lateral Window Sinus Lift.
