Sinus Lifts

The procedure of Maxillary Sinus Floor Augmentation, commonly known as a ‘Sinus Lift’, is a surgical technique. The purpose of  a Sinus Lift to increase the amount of Bone-Support in the upper jaw, by lifting the Sinus Membranes up and placing a Bone Graft (Granules of Artificial or Real Bone) in the area. Our Dentists will require you to have a specialised CBCT scan (‘CT Scan’) prior to placing any Dental Implants in your mouth.

The CT scan shows the exact location of the Sinus cavities, which will reveal whether or not you may require a Sinus Lift prior to a Dental Implant placement. In some patients, this procedure may need to be done on one or both sides of the upper jaw, depending on the level of the Sinus, as seen on your CT scan.
