Sinus Lifts


Sinuses are air-filled hollows centered in the upper jaw close to the roots of your top back teeth. There is often a layer of thin bone that separates your sinus cavities from your tooth roots, resulting from bone loss.

If your top teeth need to be removed, and you want to replace them with dental implants, you may need a sinus lift to restore the missing bone.
