Sinus surgery is a procedure which is performed on the upper jaw. For people experiencing missing teeth on their upper jaw, a condition called Maxillary Sinus Decline can occur. This is a downward movement of small areas of the upper jaw. As a result of this decline, bone resorptions occur on maxilla. When resorption continues, sufficient bone for implant placement on missing tooth area not remains. In these situations, the sinus floor is elevated by sinus surgery , and sufficient bone support is obtained for implants.
Missing bone tissue is formed via a sinus lifting procedure and the patient has a chance for implant placement. By this means, the missing tooth structure is completed by an implant procedure.
