Sinus Lift

Sinus lift

Denali Dental Care performs sinus lift work when needed at our office in Anchorage. Sinus lifts are sometimes needed to provide enough bone tissue to attach dental implants. To make enough room for the implants, the maxillary sinuses may be "lifted" upwards, leaving room for the implant post to attach properly. If you are considering dental implants, we will evaluate your existing bone and your sinuses, and let you know if this type of procedure may be necessary. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Why is a sinus lift needed?

Sinus lifts may be required for a number of different reasons, and most of them are related to the loss of bone in the jaw. Some of the causes of this bone loss can include tooth loss and/or gum disease. It is also possible that the location of the sinus is simply too close to the upper jaw to provide an adequate anchor for the implant. A sinus lift works to address these issues and help prepare the mouth for dental implant work. We'd be happy to talk to you in more detail about this at any time. Just give our office a call.
