On the day of your procedure, you will be provided with local or general anesthesia for the pain. A small incision is created into your gums to make the jawbone exposed. A tiny hole is cut deep into the jaw where the sinus is lifted and separated from the membrane.
In order to perform a sinus lift, bone material is needed to fill the void. Bone may be taken from the patient’s body, an animal, or received from a bone bank. The bone material will be placed on the jawbone and stitched for maximum performance. Your jawbone is ready to support an anchoring implant after undergoing a healing period.
