What is a Sinus Lift for Dental Implant?

Sometimes there is not enough bone in the areas of the upper molars and bicuspids because the sinus floor has a tendency to expand into the space after the teeth have been lost.  In order to properly anchor the right implant length for strength, we need to recreate adequate bone height.

With today’s innovation in instrumentation and technique, we can predictably condense bone grafting material and lift the floor of the sinus to create room for the implant.  After the healing period, the bone solidifies around the implant and the result is much more predictable than to use a short or mini implant.
