Sinus lift is a surgical procedure consisting of lifting the bottom of the sinus to replace the missing bone in the upper jaw, which increases the volume of the jawbone and enables the implantation of the implant.
The surgical procedure of lifting the bottom of the sinus is completely painless and performed under local anaesthesia. With it we rebuild the bone in the bottom area of the sinus and encourage bone formation.
Implantation of the implant will not be successful if the bone is not thick enough. That bone will not be able to stabilise the implant and will require a volume augmentation.
The sinus lift procedure is usually done at the same time as the implantation of the implant.
In that way we achieve the necessary bone thickness for a successful implantation of the implant in the rear areas of the upper jaw where the maxillary sinuses are located.
