About Sinus Lifts

A sinus lift, also called a sinus augmentation, is a surgery that adds bone to the upper jaw between the jaw and maxillary sinuses (located on either side of your nose). The sinus membrane has to be moved or “lifted” to make room to add the bone by the surgeon or periodontist. If the sinuses are too close to the jaw, or if there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw to place dental implants, you may need a sinus lift. A highly experienced periodontist like Dr. Gregg W. McKenzie is an excellent choice for performing the sinus lift surgery if you know you need one.

Some of the primary reasons for getting a sinus lift include:

  • Bone loss due to periodontal disease or tooth loss
  • Maxillary sinus is too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed
  • Loss of too many teeth in the upper arch.
