    Sinus Lifts in Pearland, TX

    What Are Sinus Lifts?

    A sinus lift, or sinus augmentation, is a cutting-edge technique that is widely used to improve the outcome of dental implants. In this technique, our dental specialists raise the sinus membrane and place a bone graft below it to encourage the formation of healthy bone in the upper jaw. Once the bone has regenerated, we can use it as a foundation for dental implants.

    The procedure takes only one visit, followed by a few weeks of healing. Our Pearland, TX, team performs sinus lifts with precision to minimize the risk of post-treatment complications. You can trust our experts completely with your oral care.

    Questions About Sinus Lifts?

    Procedure Of Sinus Lifts In Pearland, TX

    Our dentists utilize the latest techniques to safely perform the sinus lift procedure at our practice in Pearland, TX. After an initial consultation, oral exam, and digital X-rays, we will determine if the procedure is right for you. Many people choose general anesthesia for this technique, although it can also be done under local anesthesia.

    First, we will make a small cut in the molar or premolar region to expose the jawbone. Then, we will create a small opening to reach the sinus membrane and carefully lift it upward. We will place the prepared bone graft in that area to rebuild a strong base for dental implants.

    In the final step, we will close the treatment site and place stitches. The healing process may take several months, during which we will schedule follow-up visits to check the growth of bone. After reaching the desired thickness of bone in the upper jaw region, we will begin with the placement of dental implants.

    Recovery After Treatment at Dental Specialists of Pearland, TX

    A few days after the surgery, you may experience pain, swelling, or bleeding at the treatment site. Our Pearland, TX, team will provide detailed instructions to avoid such complications after sinus lift treatment. Avoid forceful sneezing or blowing your nose for a few days, as this may loosen the bone graft. We will remove the stitches after 7 to 10 days and schedule follow-up visits. The entire recovery period may take 3 to 6 months.
