Missing Teeth » Sinus Lift

Before an implant can be placed, some patients will require surgical preparation in the upper jaw to ensure there is enough bone tissue into which the implant can be secured.

When the upper jaw has had no teeth for some time, the bone and surrounding tissues begin to disappear. If this occurs, there may not be sufficient levels of dense bone to place an implant. Fortunately, science has advanced a great deal in this area and one solution is to perform a sinus lift.

A sinus lift is an oral surgical procedure that extends into the sinus cavity above the jaw and packs bone graft material into this space. This graft material will be incorporated by the surrounding bone and form a solid structure very similar to bone. After a waiting period, the site will be checked and once an adequate bone density level is achieved your implant will be ready to be placed.


  • Having moved from Surrey just a year ago, I had to find a new dental surgeon.

    Our new dentist, Dr Farid Rafatnia, at the Witterings Dental Practice is brilliant. I had quite a lot of work done including extraction, fillings and bridges. All were carried out within a cheery atmosphere and with great professionalism. Anyone who goes there will really benefit from this dental practice. The staff are all so cheerful and helpful too.

  • Doctor Rafatnia has provided me with substantial dental treatment during early 2014 and I cannot recommend him enough. The treatment has been of the highest standard and to my complete satisfaction. Doctor Rafatnia is very pleasant, professional and reassuring.

  • We have been going to this practice for over 30 years. During this time my wife and I have always been treated with every care and consideration. Before joining The Wittering Practice I was always in dread of having any dental treatment but was very soon put at complete ease with the care and understanding that has always been shown. We have even had to call this practice from a cruise ship with a problem and was seen and treated on the day we returned. Many thanks.
