About Sinus Augmentation

A sinus augmentation also referred to as a sinus lift, is a procedure that makes it easier for patients to receive dental implants in Louisville. Sinuses, and hollow cavities that run throughout the skull, make it challenging to place dental implants in the top back area of the mouth for patients who’ve experienced significant bone loss in their jaws.

A sinus lift can also help patients if their sinuses are too close to their upper jaw and need more space to place an implant.

Make the jaw capable of supporting implants

This procedure increases the bone density in the upper jaw, making the jaw capable of supporting a dental implant. A sinus augmentation is one of the most common bone grafting procedures patients undergo before receiving a dental implant. Our dentists will determine whether this procedure is required when assessing the health of a patient’s mouth during an implant consultation.
