No matter your dental health situation, we can make a full, healthy smile a reality for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

What is a sinus lift?

Also called ridge augmentation, a sinus lift increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw, near your sinuses. This area of your mouth is especially prone to poor bone quality and needs special attention as part of dental implant treatment.

There are many benefits of a sinus lift procedure:

  • Improves bone quality in your upper back jaw
  • Increases the amount of bone in your jaw
  • Gives you the best chance for a successful dental implant

Why would you need a sinus lift?

Most people who are dealing with missing teeth also suffer from bone loss in the jaw. In fact, 25% of your supporting jawbone dissolves in the first year after tooth loss. This is why those with missing teeth eventually take on a sunken-face appearance.

Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth and restore the health, function and appearance of your smile. However, sufficient bone and tissue are required for dental implants to work. It’s quite the catch-22!

More reasons a sinus lift may be necessary
  • Your jawbone has been damaged
  • You’ve suffered bone loss due to gum disease
  • You have a large sinus cavity
  • You have a thin jawbone
  • A cyst or tumor was removed from the area

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr G. Eric Li

Is ridge augmentation the same as a bone graft?

Ridge augmentation is similar to a bone graft. With this treatment, we use bone and tissue-grafting procedures to increase the amount of bone in your upper back jaw.
Dr G. Eric Li

What is involved in getting a sinus lift?

  1. We offer IV sedation, local anesthesia and nitrous oxide options to help you feel relaxed during treatment
  2. Dr. Li will make an incision in your gum tissue and lift it upwards to make room for the bone graft
  3. From there, the bone is grafted to the upper jaw and given time to heal
Dr G. Eric Li

Will I have problems with my sinuses after the procedure?

No. A sinus lift or ridge augmentation does not change your sinuses, allergies or breathing.
