Over time, missing teeth will cause bone loss. This condition can prevent you from qualifying for dental implants.
By performing a sinus lift, Dr. Gregory E. Anderson can increase bone density in the upper jaw and improve your eligibility for implants.

What Is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation, involves lifting the maxillary sinus and filling the resulting space with a bone graft. The maxillary sinus is the largest of the four paranasal sinuses, and is the sinus that most frequently gets in the way of dental work. When you lose a tooth, the bone tissue in that area will begin to recede. This can result in the sinus floor dipping into the area where the tooth initially sat. This procedure not only creates a proper foundation for an implant, but also prevents disturbing the maxillary sinus.

I brought my elderly father on the referral of a Cache Valley medical clinic (Sterling Healthcare) to see Dr. Anderson. The staff and clinicians were totally professional and kind to us both. Saw us the same day as my dad was experiencing a difficultly with his face. Dr. Anderson was great. He got my dad on a treatment plan to get him back to normal. So thankful for his care, billing policy, and professionalism. Thank you all. We’d highly recommend this facility.View on Google

How Long Is the Sinus Lift Recovery?
Healing from a sinus lift takes anywhere from four months to a year. This months-long recovery process gives the graft sufficient time to integrate with the existing bone structure of your upper jaw.
As you heal, you'll have periodic follow-up visits with Dr. Anderson at his Logan, UT, or Garland, UT, locations. Be sure to follow all post-op instructions closely to relieve your side effects and prevent infection. Feel free to contact the practice if you have any questions or if any urgent issues arise.
Once the graft is fully healed, it will be ready to anchor a dental implant in place. Placing the implant will require another oral surgery and several more months of recovery.
