At times, loss of the upper molar teeth may lead to excessive loss of the underlying jaw bone, leaving little or no bone left for implant placement. Hope need not be lost though. By performing a sinus augmentation (sinus lift), bone levels can be restored. It is a surgical procedure which involves lifting of the sinus membrane and then packing the space between the jaw bone and the membrane with an artificial bone substitute like Geistlich Bio-Oss. Thus, increasing the amount of bone available and ensuring a favorable outcome of the implant to be placed in that region.
