A Sinus Lift is performed in order to prepare a site for a dental implant in the upper jaw. Sometimes, when a patient has elected to have a dental implant, it may be necessary to have a sinus graft performed prior to insertion of the implant.
There may be a number of reasons why patients will have to undergo a sinus lift procedure. It could be that there are anatomical structures, such as the patient having a small jaw, or a large sinus, or a combination of the two resulting in little room for implant insertion.
When the sinus graft has been successfully completed Dr. Sirinian may insert the dental implants immediately.
