Sinus lift surgery is a procedure which is performed to raise the sinus floor to place bone grafting for dental implants. This type of procedure is performed in the upper jaw surrounding the nose and around the cheek bones. When a molar or premolar is extracted or lost, the floor of the sinus expands which decreases the thickness of the bone. This area is commonly known to have insufficient bone quantity due to the close proximity to the sinus. To make room for the new bone graft, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward/lifted into place.
