Sinus Lift

Sinus Lift NYC, Becoming a Candidate for Dental Implants

If you're interested in dental implants but your maxillary sinus are too close to your upper jaw bone, we can perform a procedure called a sinus lift that will create enough space in the jaw for ideal dental implant placement.

What is a Sinus Lift?

Here at SmilesNY, we can perform a simple surgical procedure for patients whose sinus cavities are too close to the jawbone for implants to be placed successfully. Our surgeon will gently lift the sinuses away from the upper jaw, and apply bone grafts to the jaw to create a thicker structure. This will allow implants to be placed with much greater success.

What Bone Grafting Materials Are Used?

Each patient is different, and the source of your bone grafts depends on several factors. The grafts can be harvested from your own body (autograft), or a cadaver (allograft), or different synthetic bone materials. Our talented staff periodontist, Kevin Loshak D.D.S., will work with you to decide which option is best.

Is a Sinus Lift Complicated?

Actually, the procedure is a simple one performed in one visit. Kevin Loshak D.D.S. will make a small incision in the gum and gently move the sinus upward before placing bone grafting material.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Sinus Lift?

If your success with dental implants is being hindered by a maxillary sinus in too­close proximity to your jaw, then a sinus lift is for you. Feel free to schedule a consultation to go over options today!
