Sinus Lift Oral Surgeon Near Me : Los Angeles, CA
A sinus lift is a bone graft procedure that adds bone to the upper back part of the jaw. This is often done for people who want dental implants in this area, but do not have enough bone to hold an implant back there. This can be a game changer for people who need dental implants.
A sinus lift raises the sinus floor and grows bone in the floor of the sinus so that dental implants can be screwed into this new bone growth.
During a sinus lift procedure, an oral surgeon cuts the gum tissue where your back teeth used to be, pulls back gum issue to expose the bone, cuts a small circle in the bone, lifts the bony piece into the sinus cavity, and then fills the empty lower part of the sinus with bone graft material (from your own body or synthetic materials).
The upper back jaw is one of the most difficult areas to screw in dental implants because of the bone quantity and the closeness of the sinus. You want an oral surgeon who is very experienced in the area in order to have a successful surgery, which has to be done exactly right.
