Amongst our many areas of expertise, sinus lift surgery is one of the treatments that we are proud to offer our patients.
Sinus lift surgery, or sinus augmentation, is a procedure that allows a patient to get dental implants. In order for dental implants to be a viable option for patients it is necessary for there to be bone for the implants to be anchored to. When the sinus wall is too thin it is impossible to place dental implants. The sinus graft, or sinus lift is a solution to this problem. Our Mahwah oral surgeon will enter the sinus from where the upper teeth used to be. The sinus membrane is then lifted upward and donor bone is inserted into the floor, or base of the sinus. After several months of healing the donor bone becomes part of the patient’s jaw and dental implants can be successfully inserted and stabilized in the new sinus bone. This procedure allows patients, who previously had to settle for loose dentures, to get dental implants and have a fixed, long lasting solution to having missing teeth.
