Sinus Augmentation
When the upper posterior teeth (molars) are lost, the sinuses increase in size. This creates an insufficient amount of bone to support an implant. Therefore, a sinus lift procedure involves gaining access to the sinus through your mouth and placing a bone graft in the sinus area. The bone graft will promote new bone growth allowing for the placement of an implant. In certain situations, an implant may be placed at the time of sinus augmentation.
