There are two types of sinus lift procedures. The procedure you receive will depend on your specific needs and the amount of bone remaining. Dr. Haynes will discuss your options with you prior to the sinus lift.
Before the sinus lift begins, an anesthetic is applied. Dr. Haynes will create a small opening in the bone to access the sinus cavity. He will then gently lift the sinus back to its original position. A grafting material is placed beneath the newly raised sinus cavity along the existing bone. This grafting material will then mesh with your bone, thus creating more bone.
