Often, patients who have lost teeth in the upper jaw require a sinus lift in order to have dental implants placed. This is because the bone in the area where teeth are missing naturally begins to shrink or resorb over time. As a result, the sinuses expand to occupy the empty space where the bone used to be.
But we have great news to share. With a sinus lift, living with missing teeth isn’t permanent. Our skilled team will lift your sinuses into the original position, which will make room for bone regeneration. In four to nine months, your upper jaw will have enough bone to receive proper dental implants.
In other words, with a sinus lift, you’ll be able to get your beautiful smile back!
Simply schedule a consultation at Mountain Top Periodontics & Implants to find out if you’re a good candidate. If you are, we’ll perform your sinus lift and track your bone regrowth. When the process is done and you’ve regained your oral health, we’ll celebrate alongside you as you smile with confidence.
