Leading-Edge Technology Makes Your Sinus Lift Procedure Precise

Our dentists need to get a good look at your jawbone to determine if you need a sinus lift procedure. To do so, they will likely use our 3-D CT scanner, a special kind of X-ray that reveals far more detail than a conventional X-ray. It helps our implant dentists plan and perform your surgery. The upper back jaw is one of the trickiest areas to place implants because of its proximity to your sinus cavity.

For your procedure, they will:

  • Numb your mouth with local anesthesia and administer sedation if you’ve chosen to receive it
  • Make an incision and lift a small piece of bone from your upper jaw into your sinus cavity
  • Fill the new space with bone grafting material
  • Close the incision

Depending on the implant procedure you plan to receive, new bone will be allowed to develop for a few months prior to implant placement. In some cases, however, it’s possible to receive your implant immediately after your sinus lift.

Whether you’re receiving a sinus lift or implant placement, you will benefit from the expertise of our dentists. Among them is Dr. Daniel Le Pera, who has a certification in osseous (bone) reconstruction and has completed advanced training in implantology.
