What is a sinus lift?
You may not be a good candidate for dental implants as there needs to be a healthy bone density and an appropriate amount of space for a surgical post to be placed without touching the sinuses. Sinus lift surgery can be used to help you become a candidate for a dental implant. At 286 Madison Dental, we will get you ready for a dental implant with a sinus lift. Inadequate bone height in the upper jaw, poor-quality bone, or sinuses that might be too near to put an implant are all reasons why you may require a sinus lift, also called sinus augmentation surgery. Your sinus floor is lifted so that an implant will be properly placed. Schedule an appointment with our team at our office in New York, NY to learn more about sinus lift surgery and dental implants.
Who is a good candidate for a sinus lift?
Candidates for a sinus lift would have an insufficient area in the top jaw to accommodate a dental implant if the sinuses are excessively big or too close to the jawbone. In your appointment with our team, you will need an x-ray to measure your sinuses and jaw and determine if moving the sinuses and/or a bone graft would be a proper course of action to prepare you for a dental implant.

What happens during a sinus lift procedure?
A sinus lift is a detailed surgical process completed in our office by our New York City dental team. If necessary, a bone graft is prepared. A surgical incision will be made in the soft tissue at the back of the mouth. The tissue will be lifted to reveal the jawbone. The bone graft, if needed, will be placed before the sinuses are pushed higher and further from the jaw. Lastly, the incision in the gums will be sutured.
What is recovery like after sinus augmentation?
After your sinus surgery, you might be prescribed an antibiotic and pain reliever to assist you through your recovery. Our team will also talk to you about how you should take care of your incisions with instructions before the procedure. You need to schedule another appointment at 286 Madison Dental for suture removal about a week after your sinus surgery. The bone graft may take a few months to heal before a dental implant may be placed.

Does insurance cover sinus lifts?
For patients with dental insurance, we'll contact your provider to confirm your policy and calculate your costs. If you do not have dental insurance, then our team can talk to you regarding payment options and give you more information on medical financing.
Reconstruction to improve dental health
If you qualify for a sinus lift, preparing the jawbone is essential to implant success. Dental implants need a good support system in the jawbone before they may be installed, and having a sinus lift surgery will keep the implant from imposing in your sinuses. We ask you to call 286 Madison Dental in New York, NY to schedule an appointment with our team.
