Dentist in Homewood, IL
A sinus lift is a surgical procedure, which increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw bone to allow for the placement of an upper dental implant. When a tooth is lost on the upper ridge, the floor of the sinus gradually becomes lower and leads to a loss of bone volume, which must be available for the successful placement of a dental implant.
Prior to receiving a sinus lift, an extensive evaluation of your bone and soft tissue will be performed to provide a safe and successful procedure.
Sinus augmentation is “technique sensitive,” and should be performed only by an appropriately trained periodontist, oral surgeon, or maxillofacial surgeon.
Sedation dentistry allows for you to receive extensive treatment, tooth replacement and related surgical procedures, while safely in a state of deep relaxation.
