Your sinuses are located directly above your upper jaw, particularly above your back teeth (molars). If you have lost a back tooth, your bone density may have decreased in that area. In order to make your bone dense enough for an implant, Dr. Feriel El Ghaoui may perform a sinus lift, or a sinus augmentation. During this procedure, our dentist will lift the sinuses to reach the bone underneath and perform a bone graft. Our team at Tara Hills Dental is very experienced, and we will ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your treatment.
