Chicago Sinus Lift
Our Chicago sinus lift is a procedure that can free you to get upper dental implants when you might otherwise have had to settle for a traditional bridge or denture, or worse still leave the empty space where a tooth used to be. Here at Northwestern Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, PC, we want all of our valued patients to have the option to get dental implants, and when it comes to sinus lifts, you are in the best possible hands because we have the experience and expertise in performing them.
What does your sinus have to do with replacement teeth? With traditional bridges and dentures, they are simply attached to the gum surface, either with cement or with dental adhesive, and then further secured by anchoring them to the neighboring teeth or by using clasps. Dental implants are different. They are nothing short of a revolution in full-tooth restoration. They each include a root, just like your real tooth do. For bottom teeth, that root, which is actually a titanium post, is surgically placed in your jaw bone. When jaw tissue is insufficient for an implant, a bone grafting procedure is done. Our Chicago sinus lift is the equivalent for an upper tooth. Bone tissue is either harvested from another part of your body, or we obtain tissue form a donor bank. This bone is added to your sinus cavity, spurring the growth of new and stronger bone, which then allows for the successful placement of an implant. And since this tooth replacement can last you for many years, and maybe even for life, the minimal effort put in to ensure that the process works is well worth it.
