The Necessity of a Sinus Lift
A sinus lift is part of the implant procedure where you don't have enough upper jaw bone. Usually it can be done at the same time as the implant procedure, but on occasion, it needs to be performed separately.
A sinus lift is a procedure on the upper jaw where there is not sufficient bone for an implant to be screwed into. There are minimal depths that any implant must have so it can properly be screwed into the tooth's root socket. It's a matter of millimeters; but each millimeter is critical. When there is not enough space, the space needed can be created by lifting the sinus and placing PRF and sometimes bone graft materials into the site.
For those procedures occurring in the same day, you will hardly notice anything has happened at all. If the procedure is a stand-alone procedure, you will need to heal for about two to three weeks before the implant can be placed.
