You deserve the best smile ever! If you have missing teeth, dental implants are most likely on your mind. But, your jawbone integrity may not be up to par in order to receive and hold an implant. A sinus lift is necessary when the maxillary sinus cavity (in the rear portion of the upper jaw) is too large, meaning there is insufficient bone for a secure implant placement.
Do I Need a Sinus Lift?
At the time of your initial consultation regarding dental implants, our dentist will perform a comprehensive oral exam to ensure that your mouth is ready for the procedure. During this visit, our dentist will evaluate and determine if you need a sinus lift. If need be, the sinus lift may be done before the placement of dental implants or during.
Dental implants are a great smile restoration option. But, you need to make sure your jaw is strong enough to handle the implant. So, contact us at Family Dentistry of Boynton Beach today to schedule a visit and discuss your oral health needs.
