Sinus augmentation (also known as sinus lift or sinus graft) is an oral surgery procedure in which bone is added to the upper jaw, or maxilla, in the area of premolar and molar teeth. A panaramic x-ray is taken prior to the procedure to determine if you are a candidate or not. We may recommend dental implants to replace upper missing molors or premolars. In some cases there is not enough bone to support a dental implant. The goal of the surgery is to graft enough bone material onto the upper jaw to support the base of a dental implant. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia, requiring up to six months of healing for the sinus augmentation to support dental implants.
