The quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed is key to implant placement success. You may have heard that upper back implants are particularly difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. Tooth loss leads to bone loss, and when bone is lost in that area there may not be enough bone to place implants.
Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing new bone for the placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow for new bone to form.
