Your lack of adequate amount of bone in your upper jaw may not make it impossible for the placement of dental implants in your teeth. For this reason, you may need to undergo a dental procedure or surgery so as to supplement the quantity and quality of bone in your upper jaw before you can receive a dental implant. This procedure is known as Sinus Grafting.
What is Sinus Grafting?
Sinus grafting also is known as sinus lift which is a procedure that is used to supplement the amount of bone in your upper jaw. In sinus grafting, the bone will be added to your upper jaw, particularly between the molars and premolars. The procedure is also referred to as sinus augmentation. The sinus grafting procedure will ensure that there is an adequate amount of bone, both in quantity and quality, for you to receive dental implants. There are two approaches to sinus augmentation, Lateral approach and Crestal approach.

Using the lateral sinus lift procedure, the amount of available bone in your upper jaw will be supplemented. This will make it possible to place a dental implant in your upper jaw. The lateral approach will elevate the tissue, creating a window in the bone to expose the sinus membrane. The graft will then be placed here along with the implant. Once it heals, the implants will be restored, creating an aesthetic and functional tooth replacement solution.
When the limitation of the maxillary sinus makes you unable to use a dental implant, vertical sinus lifts is the ideal option. Vertical sinus lift is minimally invasive, and implants can be placed at the same time. As the site is prepared to receive the implants, the sinus membrane will also be elevated at the same time. Once healed, the implants will be restored creating an aesthetic and functional teeth replacement solution.
