A sinus lift is a procedure that our experienced oral surgeon in Chicago can perform to add more bone to your upper jaw near your molars and premolars. In order to make room for this excess bone, the sinus membrane itself needs to be lifted. This procedure is performed when there is not enough bone height in your upper jaw or your sinuses are too close to the jaw in order for dental implants to be properly placed. Needless to say, this surgery is delicate and only the most experienced surgeons should perform the surgery. Dr. Fedin has nearly two decades of experience!
Reasons You May Need this Surgery
There are many reasons this surgery may be beneficial for you. If you have lost teeth in your upper jaw, there may not be enough room for your implants to be placed. Gum disease is another reason, as it can lead to a loss in bone mass. If the shape and size of your maxillary sinus are too close to your upper jaw, this may require you to visit our oral surgeon in Chicago as well.
We understand that not everyone enjoys going to the dentist, which is why we offer sedation dentistry to help ensure our patients are comfortable. Plus, we even offer a complimentary car service in order to help you pick you up and take you back home!
