Sinus Lift Surgery

Sinus lift surgery, also known as sinus augmentation, is a dental procedure that involves adding bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars. This is done by adding bone material to the area between the jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are located on either side of the nose. The procedure is typically done when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw to support dental implants. When teeth are lost from the upper jaw, the bone in that area may begin to shrink or resorb. This can make it difficult to insert dental implants in the remaining bone. 

Furthermore, the Maxillary sinus augmentation, a hollow space behind the cheekbones, can enlarge and occupy the place where the bone used to be. This significantly lowers the amount of accessible bone for implant implantation. Sinus lift surgery is typically performed when there isn’t enough bone in the upper jaw to support dental implants. Dental implants are a popular option for people who have lost teeth due to injury, decay, or other reasons. However, without adequate bone, implants may not be able to fuse with the jawbone properly and may fail. A sinus lift surgery can help to lay a stable foundation for dental implants, which can improve the function and aesthetics of the patient’s smile.

During the Sinus Augmentation treatment, our skilled oral surgeon will make a small incision in the gum tissue to reveal the underlying bone. A small incision is then formed in the bone, and the sinus membrane is gradually pulled upward to make room for the bone graft material. The bone graft material utilized in the treatment can come from a variety of sources, including the patient’s own bone tissue or a synthetic material. After the bone graft material is implanted, the incision is sutured closed, and a time of healing is required for the new bone tissue to merge with the existing bone.

Understanding Root Causes of Dental Issues

tooth damage

Insufficient bone

Sinus lift surgery may be necessary if there is not enough bone in the upper jaw to support dental implants.

Gum disease

Tooth loss

Tooth loss due to decay, gum disease, or injury can cause bone loss in the jaw, making it necessary to undergo sinus lift surgery.

Congenital absence


As people age, they may experience bone loss in the jaw, which can lead to the need for sinus lift surgery.



Trauma to the jaw or sinuses can cause bone loss, which may require sinus lift surgery to rebuild the area.

failed root canal

Genetic factors

In some cases, people may be born with insufficient bone in the upper jaw, making sinus lift surgery necessary.


Medical conditions

Certain medical conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer, or autoimmune disorders may cause bone loss in the jaw and require sinus lift surgery.

tooth injurery

Chronic sinusitis

Chronic sinusitis can cause inflammation in the sinuses, leading to bone loss in the upper jaw, and necessitate sinus lift surgery.


Prior dental work

If a person has had previous dental work in the upper jaw, such as extractions or root canals, they may require sinus lift surgery to support dental implants.

Our Treatment Process


The patient is given a local anesthetic to numb the area where the surgery will take place.


The surgeon makes a small incision in the gum tissue near the back of the upper jaw.

Accessing the sinu

The surgeon then cuts a small window in the bone to gain access to the sinus cavity.

Elevating the sinus membrane

The surgeon gently pushes up the sinus membrane, creating a space between the membrane and the bone.

Bone grafting

The surgeon then places bone graft material into the space created, which will fuse with the existing bone and create a stronger foundation for dental implants.

Closing the incision

The incision is closed with stitches, and the patient is given post-operative instructions for proper care.

Frequently Asked Questions

A sinus lift surgery is necessary when there isn’t enough bone height in the upper jaw, or if the sinuses are too close to the jaw, which can result in implants that are not securely anchored.

The length of the surgery depends on the individual case, but typically, a sinus lift surgery takes between 60-90 minutes.

The procedure is done under local anesthesia, which means the patient won’t feel any pain during the surgery. After the surgery, there may be some discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication.

The recovery time varies depending on the individual case, but it typically takes between 7-10 days for the patient to resume normal activities, but full recovery takes more than 6 months.

As with any surgery, there are some risks, such as infection, bleeding, and damage to surrounding structures. However, these risks are rare.

It typically takes between 6-9 months for the bone graft to fully integrate with the existing bone and for the jaw to be ready for dental implants.

After the surgery, the dentist will schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the healing process and discuss the next steps in the dental implant process.
