What is Sinus Lifting?
Sinus lifts are surgical procedures that widen the nasal passage by creating a small incision in your septum and cartilage area. This can be done under local anesthesia, which means you’ll experience no pain during or after your procedure. You’ll typically be able to return home after one hour of recovery, depending on your case’s severity.

We recommend a sinus lift if dental implants are placed soon after you have your teeth extracted or if you’ve had teeth extracted but are getting implants much later.

If dental implants are placed soon after you have teeth extracted, a sinus lift may be recommended to increase the height of the bone around your teeth. This procedure is performed in a single appointment under local anesthesia. It takes about an hour to finish the procedure, and recovery time is minimal.

If you’re getting new teeth later on as part of an orthodontic treatment plan (such as braces), then we might recommend a sinus lift to help support them properly while they’re in place—this will also keep them aligned with each other; so they don’t move out of place later on down the road.
