If you are in need of dental implants, but have lost bone in the upper back area, you may need a sinus lift. This procedure lifts the sinus floor and allows room for placing additional bone in the area.
Before your procedure, a local anesthetic will numb the site. Using a specialized dental instrument, your doctor will gently lift the sinus membrane and then a bone grafting material is placed between the raised sinus cavity and the existing bone.
