A sinus lift is a surgery (done by Dental Implants Greenville NC) that adds bone to the upper jaw in the molar and premolar area where dental implants would be placed.
Several reasons for a sinus lift include:
1. When a patient loses teeth in the area of molars and premolars and may not have enough bone for implants to be placed because the anatomy of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.
2. Periodontal disease may causes bone loss in the posterior region of the upper jaw.
3. The maxillary sinus could be too close to the area where Drs. Capps, Bowman & Padgett may need to place dental implants. Maxillary sinus varies in size from patient to patient.
