Replacing a lost molar or premolar tooth in the upper arch using dental implant may require sinus lift surgery. The absence of tooth for long duration can cause the bone to resorb, leaving behind a thin layer. Sinus lift surgery is performed to detach the soft membrane in the maxillary sinus and build the bone. This helps in creating sufficient bone volume to hold the implant. Sinus lift surgery is a complex procedure which can be performed by dental professionals who are specially trained in the area of implant dentistry and bone augmentation. Our dentists have knowledge and several years of experience in restorative care, especially in performing dental implant surgery and related procedures. If you have a missing tooth, make an appointment and meet our dentists in Rancho Mirage, CA. Our dental care can improve your oral health and prevent dental infection in you.

What is sinus lift surgery?

The maxillary sinus is an organ of the supporting tooth structure that is located near the nose. It contains sinus membrane which is covered by thin layer of bone structure. Sinus lift surgery involves lifting of the soft membrane in order to make space for building bone structure, which will hold the implant. The bone structure may be taken from an artificial source, from other part of patient’s body or from animal source (cow). During the process, the dentist takes X-rays and CT scan to check the thickness of bone structure and plan the treatment.

Sinus lift surgery

As stated above, a dental professional who has the skills in performing oral surgeries can perform sinus lift. After the initial examination and treatment planning, local anesthesia is used for painless treatment process. The dentist makes an opening through the thin bone structure to detach the soft membrane. The area is filled using appropriate bone substitute material. The area is closed and left to heal for few months. The implant placement may be done about 9 months after the sinus lift surgery.
