Sinus Lift Dentists Near Me

A form of dental bone graft, our Greater Orlando, FL, dentists may recommend sinus lift surgery when a patient’s upper back jaw has insufficient bone quantity and quality. Though dental implants can be used to replace any missing tooth, the area close to the sinus requires extra care if one or more is to be placed in that location. We can go over all necessary details if a thorough examination indicates you are in need of this procedure.

Sinus lifts are bone grafts performed when the upper back jaw has insufficient bone quantity or quality.

Here’s what you need to know.

Sinus Lifts Explained

Generally speaking, sinus lifts are used to ease the placement of dental implants. Without one, the implant would fail (not properly fuse) and not remain secure in the jawbone. Performing the procedure builds a solid foundation for either a singular titanium post or multiple by increasing the amount of bone between the back molars and premolars.

Drs. Susanne and Mikal Baaqee will move the sinus membrane up, or lift it hence the surgery’s name, to make room for incoming bone material. We want any eligible patients to enjoy the wonders that implants can bring in terms of appearance and functionality so if a sinus lift is deemed necessary and you’re on board, we’ll make it happen.

Candidates for a Sinus Lift

If it’s found that the bone height in your upper jaw is lacking or your sinuses are a bit too close to the jaw itself, our dentists will strongly recommend a sinus lift in the not-so-distant future. Bone loss in this area affects many individuals though the reason for it may differ.

For instance, you may experience bone loss because of:

  • Advanced periodontal (gum) disease
  • Absence of teeth in upper jaw
  • The body’s ability to reabsorb bone after tooth loss if not being stimulated
