Sinus Lift

shrink

Often patients who have lost teeth in the upper jaw require a sinus lift in order to have dental implants placed. This is because the bone in the area where teeth are missing naturally begins to shrink or resorb over time. As a result, the sinuses expand to occupy the empty space where the bone used to be. With insufficient bone to securely place the dental implant, a sinus lift is necessary to move the sinus where it is meant to be and to place additional bone in the area.

The Procedure

There are two forms of sinus lift procedures, and the form you receive depends on your individual needs and the amount of bone you still have. You doctor will discuss your options prior to the procedure.

Before the procedure begins, a local anesthetic is applied to the site. The doctor will then create a small opening in the bone to access the sinus cavity. Using a small instrument, the doctor will then gently lift the sinus back to its original position. A grafting material is then placed beneath the newly raised sinus cavity along the existing bone. This grafting material will then mesh with your bone, thus creating more bone.

After the Procedure

Usually, you will require 4-9 months to heal completely from the sinus lift procedure before dental implants can be placed. This increase in bone will compensate for bone lost and will allow for multiple implants to be placed. Without this procedure, many patients will not qualify for dental implants.

Our Happy Patients

"I had heard about Dr. Denemark and Denemark Periodontal for years. Good thing, because I finally have needed their services a couple times in the past year. Everyone in the office is friendly and wants to make sure that what needs to be fixed gets taken care of in the most professional way. Not to mention the beautiful office and the state of the art equipment and technology make it my choice and I refer anyone who needs dental help to visit Dr. Denemark. His concern for your health and his approach to fixing the issue that is best for you makes Denemark the only choice in the Chicagoland Area."

"Dr. Denemark has done several implants on me and I'm really happy not only with the results, which are so perfect, as with the way the procedure was handled. I also had bone and gum grafting done with him and had excellent results. If I ever need an implant or grafting again Dr. Denemark is for sure the doctor I'll have them done with! He has been doing implants in our family for years, grandma (who had over 7 implants done with him), my nephew, my sister in law and so on. Totally trustworthy and great person! Excelente Periodontal Specialist!"

"If you are looking for a professional periodontist who treats you with respect, dignity, and actually cares about the end result rather than just the money, then you MUST go visit Dr. Denemark! Dr. Denemark and his staff, especially Marci, are extremely personable and care about the quality of their work. I highly recommend their work and most definitely will recommend them to friends and family. I appreciate you all and thank you for making what could've been a scary experience, a pleasant one."
