Sinus Lift Surgery In Sugar Land, TX
Behind your cheeks and on top of your upper teeth, you have maxillary sinuses, which always remain empty. The bone that separates your mouth from these sinuses is typically very thin, making it difficult to place stable implants into the bone following tooth loss. Fortunately, the surgical team at Oral and Facial Surgery institute of Houston utilize a bone grafting technique which solves this problem, called the “Sinus Lift Procedure.” During the procedure, Dr. Johnson carefully enters into the sinus cavity and lifts the sinus membrane. Once he has safely entered this area, Dr. Johnson can place a bone graft which will integrate with the jaw bone over several months following the procedure. Once the bone graft has been fully integrated with the jaw bone, dental implants can be placed in a separate surgical visit.
