Sinus lifts are essential for patients who lack sufficient healthy jaw bone to support dental implants. Sinus augmentation involves adding or moving bone tissue, to promote the natural growth of new bone.
The process can take several months, but will result in your upper jaw being strong enough to support dental implants.
The benefits of a sinus lift
Sinus augmentation may sound daunting, but it is a crucial first step towards a fuller, healthier smile if you’ve experienced problems with jaw bone loss. Over time, missing teeth can cause the bone beneath to deteriorate, whilst age can also play a role in the relative shape and size of your bone structure.
Prepare your mouth for dental implants with sinus lift surgery that will restore the structure of your upper jaw and prepare your mouth for dental implants. Once your jaw bone has developed and healed, you can have dental implants fitted to restore those spaces at the back of your mouth.
