In today’s post we discuss how a sinus lift can improve a patient’s candidacy for dental implants. Because patients must have sufficient bone density in their jaws to support dental implants’ tiny titanium posts, often a sinus lift is required. It has been found that the upper back jaw presents the most trouble for dental implant placement since there is often an insufficient amount of bone available. Because the sinuses sit right on top of the upper teeth, the patient is sometimes left with just a thin wall of bone between the sinus and mouth when the teeth are lost or removed. A sinus lift provides patients with a solution to this problem, allowing patients who previously could not support implants to qualify for them. Following a sinus lift, some patients can begin dental implant treatment in as few as four months.
