Dr. Harris performs sinus lift surgery to enhance bone density in the upper jaw, ensuring a secure base for durable, natural-looking dental implants.

Understanding Sinus Lift Surgery

A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, involves the precise lifting of the sinus membrane and the placement of bone graft material into the sinus floor. This procedure is often necessary when the sinuses are too close to the jaw or when the jaw bone has deteriorated, leaving insufficient space for implant placement.

Why a Sinus Lift May Be Necessary

  • Bone Loss from Tooth Extraction: The loss of upper back teeth can lead to bone resorption over time, reducing the available bone for implants.
  • Sinus Enlargement: With age or after tooth loss, sinuses can enlarge or pneumatize, encroaching on the space needed for implants.
  • Maximizing Implant Success: A sinus lift creates the optimal bone environment for the integration and stability of dental implants.

The Procedure Explained

Dr. Harris begins with a thorough evaluation, including advanced imaging techniques to assess your bone structure and sinus placement. During the surgery, a small window is opened in the sinus wall, the sinus membrane is gently lifted, and bone graft material is inserted. Over time, this graft integrates with your natural bone, creating a heightened, robust area ready for implant placement.

Recovery and Aftercare

Post-surgery, patients may experience swelling and discomfort, but these symptoms are typically mild and manageable with medications. Dr. Harris provides detailed aftercare instructions and is dedicated to supporting you through the healing process, ensuring the best possible outcome for your future implant surgery.
