Dental implants are one of the most effective smile restoration treatments available from Optum Dental Arts. However, some candidates will need additional preparation to strengthen the bones in the upper or lower jaw.
Dr. Davies may recommend a sinus lift before completing a dental implant procedure. When tooth loss occurs in the upper jaw, performing a sinus lift between the upper jaw and sinus membrane may be necessary. This area is situated near the back teeth (molars).
A sinus lift results in new bone fused to the jawbone. When Dr. Davies places implants, this additional bone will provide a base that supports the screws. The next step involves attaching crowns that match the color of the surrounding teeth to complete your new smile.

You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Davies to determine if a sinus lift is necessary. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthetic.
