Sinus Grafting

If you are preparing for dental implants in your upper jaw, our dentist may need to perform a sinus grafting, or sinus lift, procedure to ensure that your implants have enough support. We welcome you to contact Dental Resort at 469-808-9110 for more information about sinus grafting in Plano, Texas, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Shawn Nemovi.

A sinus lift, sometimes called a sinus augmentation, is a treatment that may be needed to add bone to the upper jaw in the area of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to enable successful implant placement. The maxillary sinuses are located above the upper jawbone on either side of your nose. When a tooth has been lost from the upper jaw, there may not be sufficient bone structure in the sinus region to place a dental implant. Tooth loss also leads to bone loss because the bone begins to be resorbed once the teeth have been lost or removed. If the teeth have been missing for a longer period of time, or if bone loss has occurred because of periodontal disease, this may further contribute to lack of bone for implant placement.

To supplement the bone structure and allow for the successful placement of a dental implant, our dentist may recommend a sinus lift. During this procedure, we gently lift the sinus membrane and push it up and away from the jaw. We then add bone-grafting material in the area where the sinus was to add to the bone structure.

We typically allow a healing period of 4-9 months after this procedure so the grafted material can mesh with the natural bone. The dental implant can then be placed to replace the missing tooth. For more information about whether a sinus lift is right for your oral health needs, we invite you to contact us today.

“Such a nice place to be when having dental work done. The staff and Dr. Nemovi are all very nice and personable. Dr. Nemovi wants you to be happy with results and does a great job to insure that happens. I had a crown done that needed some extra shading/ blending and I worked with their lab and they made it happen. My crown looks just like my own tooth. Success!”
