Our periodontist performs sinus lifts for our Winnipeg patients who need extra bone material in the upper back jaw, in preparation for a dental implant.
A sinus lift is a type of bone graft that adds additional bone material to the upper back jaw. Our periodontist will determine if this procedure is needed to prepare your jaw for a dental implantRequest An Appointment
When it comes to the success of a dental implant, a key component is the density of the bone in the area where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw is a difficult area to place dental implants, because of its proximity to the sinuses and the dearth of bone material to be found there.
Sinus lift surgery is performed to correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and increasing the amount of bone in the area, so that a stable implant can be placed.
