Treatment

Before treatment, you will be put under general or local anesthesia to alleviate pain. Your specialist will create a tiny incision in order to make the jawbone visible. A hole is cut into the jawbone and the sinus is lifted to separate the lining from the jaw itself.

Bone graft material must be used in order to support a sinus lift. Bone material will originate from elsewhere on the patient’s own body, harvested from a cadaver, or from an animal. The new bone material is then placed in the jawbone. The treated area will be stitched and given time to heal before dental implants are anchored.
