Not every patient is suitable for dental implants as there needs to be healthy bone density and an appropriate amount of room for a surgical post to be placed without touching the sinuses. Sinus lift surgery can be used to help patients become candidates for a dental implant. At SEDA Dental, we can prepare you for a dental implant with a sinus lift. Inadequate bone height in the upper jaw, poor-quality bone, or sinuses that may be too close to place an implant are reasons why you may need a sinus lift, also called sinus augmentation surgery. Your sinus floor needs to be moved so that an implant can be properly placed. Schedule a consultation at our office in Boynton Beach, FL to learn more about sinus lift surgery and dental implants.

Candidates for a sinus lift will have limited room in the upper jaw for an implant when the sinuses are too large or too close to the bone. During your consultation, an x-ray will be used to measure your jaw and sinuses and determine if repositioning the sinuses with or without a bone graft would be a suitable course of action before a dental implant.
What To Expect
A sinus lift is a detailed surgical procedure that is performed in our office. If needed, a bone graft will be prepared. An incision will be made in the gum at the back of your mouth. Your tissue will be moved to reveal the bone. The bone graft, if needed, will be placed before the sinuses are pushed higher and away from the jaw. Finally, the incision within the gumline will be sutured.
After your sinus lift, you might be given a prescription for an antibiotic and pain reliever to help you during your recovery. We will also prepare you for how you should care for your incisions with instructions before the procedure. You should schedule a follow-up appointment about 1 – 2 weeks after your sinus lift for suture removal. The bone graft will take several months to heal before a dental implant can be placed.
If you have insurance, we will contact your provider to confirm your coverage and estimate your out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, our financial team can talk to you about payment methods and give you information on medical financing.
Sinus Lift Surgery
If you qualify for a sinus lift, preparing the jawbone is essential to the success of an implant. Dental implants need a solid support system in the jaw before they can be installed, and a sinus lift surgery will keep the implant from imposing on your sinuses. We welcome you to contact our office in Boynton Beach, FL to schedule a consultation.
