Sinus lift

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that is often performed in dentistry and implantology. It is used when there is insufficient bone volume in the upper jaw area to place dental implants, more specifically in the area of ​​the posterior teeth.

During a sinus lift, the sinus floor (the floor of the sinus or air-filled cavity above the upper jaw) is pushed up and bone material is added under this floor. This creates more space and stability for placing dental implants. The bone material can come from a variety of sources, including the patient's own bone (autogenous bone), donor material, or synthetic bone substitutes.

The procedure is usually performed by an oral surgeon or specialist dentist and requires careful planning and technique due to its proximity to vital structures such as the sinus and nerves. After a sinus lift, a healing period is required before implants can be placed, usually several months, so that the added bone can integrate and strengthen.
