There are times when dental implant surgery is not an option because of the shape of a patient’s jawbone. In these cases, Dr. Herman may opt to perform a sinus lift procedure.
A sinus lift creates room to add bone to your upper jaw close to the molars and premolars. The dental sinus lift surgery is usually necessary when there is not enough of your natural bone to place a dental implant successfully. Some of the reasons for this are gum disease, tooth loss, or simply the shape of your sinus area.
Dr. Herman is an expert in the sinus lift procedure and is a highly sought after educator in the field. You are in good hands here. If you would like to discuss dental implants or a sinus lift procedure at our Woodbury, Long Island office, please feel free to give us a call at 516-921-8010 or fill out our appointment request form.
