A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose.
The X-rays above show a tooth that is piercing through the sinus floor (left). In order to place dental implants in this area, a sinus lift surgery is need to create space and allow the implants to fit properly. On the right X-ray, a successful sinus augmentation was preformed creating enough space for two implants.
