Sinus augmentation can set the stage.
Great preparation for implants.
Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow for new bone to form. One common method allows the periodontist to make an incision is made to expose the bone. Then a small window-like opening through the thin outside wall of the jaw is made. This bony piece is lifted into the sinus cavity then the space underneath is filled with bone graft material which will encourage growth of new bone tissue.
The incision is closed and healing is allowed to take place. Depending on your individual needs, the healing time prior to implant placement is 6 months. After the implants are placed, an additional healing period is required for the bone to grow to the implant. Undergoing sinus lift surgery has been shown to greatly increase your chances for successful implants.

What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
