At Littleton Implants & Periodontics, we offer sinus augmentation, also called a sinus lift or a sinus graft, for patients with inadequate bone for dental implants around the sinus. The maxillary sinus is located on both sides of your face in the cheek region. In the mouth, the sinus is located above the molars towards the back in the upper jaw on both sides. Sometimes, the sinus might be too low and not enough vertical bone is present to place dental implants in those areas. A Cone Beam CT scan will be taken to evaluate the position of the sinuses and the amount of bone available to place implants. If there is a deficiency of bone, sinus augmentation will be needed.
If you are in need of a sinus lift or would like implants placed in the back of the upper jaw, or if you would like more information on a sinus augmentation, please contact Littleton Implants & Periodontics. Dr. Ryan Jenkins and the rest of the staff are here to help.
Here at Littleton Implants & Periodontics, we put a special emphasis on patient comfort and education. We want to make sure each patient is fully informed of his or her diagnosis and treatment plan and feels comfortable and confident in our office. Please let us know of any specific concerns or fears you may have regarding your treatment. We’re happy to answer questions or address concerns or fears and will do our best to eliminate them.
