Sinus lift is a special type of oral surgery. It is recommended if the patients bone is not suitable for implantation. In this case, bone grafting is recommended.
The sinus lift is a special case of bone grafting. Oral surgeons use bone grafting materials to increase the height of the upper jaw. This may be necessary if the upper grinding jaw is not wide enough to hold the implants.
It may happen that the area of the missing tooth was not handled at the site of the small and big grinding site. This can easily lead to osteoporosis, bursting, resulting in the lowering of the sinus. Thus it is especially important in case of implanting to have the bone in the correct height and condition to prevent the sinus opening during oral surgery. To avoid such complications, this kind of oral surgery is nowadays a routine intervention.
