Patients who are missing teeth in their upper molar area typically require a sinus lift in order to restore bone volume. Typically, this area of the mouth has lower bone volume due to the sinus cavity above. A sinus lift procedure allows Dr. HagShenas to gently access the sinus cavity and raise the membrane. Bone grafting material is then placed under the raised sinus to fuse into healthy bone. Once your bone is restored, a dental implant can be placed in this area successfully.
