Sinus Lifting in Old Bridge NJ

 

Sinus Lifting is a surgical procedure that is used to augment bone mass in the top jaw, which assists in the successful placement of dental implants.

 

In this procedure, bone from another part of the body or artificial bone grafting material is grafted into the bone below the floor of the maxillary sinus (which are located beneath the cheeks, above the teeth and on either sides of the nose). To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward or “lifted”.

 

Sinus Lifting is performed when:

 

  • A patient has lost teeth in their upper jaw and do not have enough bone for implants to be placed.
  • Bone has been lost due to Periodontal Disease.
  • Teeth have been missing for a long time and bone has been absorbed.
  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw, disrupting the placement of the implant.
