Between skull bones, air pockets named the sinuses are located .
When the teeth are lost on rear of the upper jaw, the sinus located above this region expands because of air pressure and causes the bone under that region become thinner. A certain amount of bone volume is needed in order to implement implants to replace lost teeth. The process to increase the amount of the bone by descending the base of sinus membrane is called sinus lifting.
Sinus lifting operations do not cause any harm when performed by an expert and experienced physician . If your doctor concludes that you are not suitable for operation as a result of examination will notify you and will discuss alternative treatment options.
