Sinus Lifts Dr. Yatin Khanna DDS

A sinus-lift procedure, sometimes called a sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars.  This increases the likelihood of successful placement of dental implants.

In a sinus lift, bone from another part of the body or artificial bone grafting material is grafted into the bone below the floor of the maxillary sinus. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted."

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed.
