Sinus augmentation is one of the procedures that are required for the successful placement of dental implants. Also called a sinus lift, it is a surgical method that raises the sinus floor, increasing the height of the upper jaw so that it can have the volume that is needed to support and keep the dental implants firmly in place.
Sinus augmentation is needed before dental implants can inserted into the jaw. This requirement is determined by the implant surgeon, after determining that the structure or volume of the upper jaw is not sufficient to support the placement of dental implants. The material that is used to augment the sinus floor may be sourced from the patient’s own body, from another human source, or from the bone of a cow.
The grafting material will be given enough time to integrate with the surrounding bone tissue. After the healing period and when the structure of the upper jaw has been improved enough, it can now support dental implants and keep them secured in place.
