Benefits of
sinus lifts

If you’re considering dental implants, you may have heard of a sinus lift. A sinus lift is a type of oral surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars.

This procedure can be an excellent option for those who don’t have enough bone in their upper jaw to support dental implants. Here are some benefits of getting a sinus lift:


Better overall oral health

By getting a sinus lift, you can improve your overall oral health by restoring missing teeth and preventing bone loss that can lead to further dental problems.


Improved dental implant success rates

A sinus lift can help ensure the success of your dental implants by providing the necessary bone density and volume.


Better overall oral health

By getting a sinus lift, you can improve your overall oral health by restoring missing teeth and preventing bone loss that can lead to further dental problems.


Faster recovery time

Many patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days after the procedure.


Long-lasting results

Sinus lifts are a long-term solution for missing teeth, allowing you to enjoy a restored smile for many years to come.

Is a sinus lift right for you?

There are many benefits to having a sinus lift. Improving the quality of your jawbone allows for adding augmented bone, which can enhance the shape of your face in addition to providing an excellent foundation for implants. By raising the sinus floor, the new bone material makes for an excellent site for dental implants, a permanent restoration for missing teeth.

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure performed on the upper back jawbone. This is traditionally where most patients lose their bone density. Unfortunately, this area needs quality bone matter to attach an implant to form a complete replacement or dental implants in the rear of the arch including the molars. Healing time varies for each patient, with an expected full recovery time of 4-12 months.

Dreaming of dental implants, but have significant bone loss?

Those that want to complete their smile using the innovative approach of dental implants need to have the quality bone mass to accept the implants. Unfortunately, bone loss can happen over time. Those that currently wear dentures for replacement teeth may have a significant bone loss because the denture rests directly on the gum line. But having bone loss doesn’t disqualify you from having a permanent solution to missing teeth. With sinus lifts, we can restore your jawbone to an acceptable amount and are healthy and ideal for placing an implant.

If you could have permanent tooth replacements, wouldn’t you want to? Sinus lifts give patients their dream of a beautiful, complete smile.

If you’ve noticed a decrease in bone loss, or have been told you can’t have dental implants because of bone loss, we can help.

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that involves adding bone to the upper jaw to increase the amount of bone available for dental implant placement. This is necessary when there is not enough bone present in the upper jaw due to the expansion of the maxillary sinus.


The healing time after a sinus lift can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. In general, it can take several months for the bone graft to integrate fully with the surrounding bone and for the area to heal completely. Your dentist will monitor your progress and schedule follow-up appointments as needed.


You might need a sinus lift if you are planning to get dental implants in the upper jaw but do not have enough bone to support them. This can be due to the shape and size of your sinuses, bone loss from gum disease or tooth extractions, or natural bone resorption over time.


During a sinus lift, your dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in your gum tissue to expose the underlying bone. They will then create a small window in the bone to access the sinus cavity and gently push the membrane lining the sinus upward. Bone graft material is then added to the space created between the sinus cavity and the jawbone, and the incision is closed with stitches.


After a sinus lift, you may experience swelling, bruising, and mild to moderate pain or discomfort. Dr. Eric Kitts may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers. You will also need to avoid blowing your nose, using straws, or engaging in other activities that could create pressure in the sinus cavity. Your dentist will provide you with specific instructions for care and follow-up appointments.


Sinus lifts are considered completely safe. With any surgical procedure, there are minor risks. With a sinus lift, acute sinusitis is one concern to be aware of. However, with prompt treatment, it can be treated.


As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with a sinus lift. These can include bleeding, infection, sinusitis, and damage to surrounding structures such as teeth or nerves. Your dentist will discuss these risks with you before the procedure and take steps to minimize them.
