A Periodontal Sinus Lift is a common dental procedure that is performed by specifically by a periodontist. At Peace Periodontics, we are pleased to offer Periodontal Sinus Lift here in our dental office.
We first we have to ask the question, “Where are the Sinuses located?”
Your sinuses are located right behind your cheeks on top of your upper teeth. The sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces into which you breathe air through your nose. While you use your sinuses for breathing, they also happen to include some of the roots for your upper teeth, which extend up and into the upper maxillary sinus cavity.
When you need to have any upper teeth replaced, specifically using Dental Implants, the bone in the sinuses may first need some augmentation before Dental Implants can be inserted into the mouth. This is due to the fact that there is just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus cavity and the mouth itself. When using Dental Implants to replace any extracted or missing teeth, the Dental Implants always require solid bone mass to securely hold them in place, thus ensuring the success of the procedure.
