Sinus Augmentation

Sinus augmentation is a simple procedure that elevates the sinus floor. Both predictable and highly successful, these procedures allow implant replacement for missing upper molars.  

In a Direct (Open) Sinus Lift, a small window is opened on the outside of the sinus wall. This creates enough space to properly place a dental implant.  Various materials may be used for grafting the sinus floor. These substances are gradually replaced as the body produces new bone. Following a sufficient healing period  (4-6 months),  implants are then placed.

Under certain conditions, an even simpler (Indirect/Closed Sinus Lift) procedure can be utilized.  The bone remaining under the sinus floor is gently “pushed up”, thus lifting the floor of the sinus.  Bone replacement materials are then placed beneath this lifted bone. Often times, this is done simultaneously with implant placement.
