Sinus Lifts

Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, located in Shelby Township, Michigan, offers advanced sinus lift procedures to help patients with insufficient bone structure in the upper jaw receive dental implants. Led by Dr. Joseph Hildebrand, our skilled team specializes in sinus lifts to create a solid foundation for successful implant placement.

A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure that increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw, specifically in the area of the premolars and molars. This procedure is often required when the sinuses are too close to the jawbone or when there is inadequate bone height for implant placement.

When you choose Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for your sinus lift needs, you can trust in our expertise and commitment to providing exceptional care. Dr. Joseph Hildebrand will carefully evaluate your oral health, utilizing advanced imaging technology to assess the condition of your sinuses and the amount of bone available for implant placement.

During a sinus lift procedure, our skilled team will make a small incision in the gum tissue to access the sinus cavity. The sinus membrane is gently lifted, creating space to place bone grafting material. This graft material, which can be taken from your own body, a donor source, or a synthetic material, will stimulate new bone growth and increase the height and density of the jawbone.

Once the bone graft is in place, the incision is closed, and a healing period is necessary to allow the new bone to integrate with the existing bone. During this time, our team will closely monitor your progress and provide post-operative instructions to facilitate proper healing.

After the healing period, your jawbone will have gained the necessary height and density to support dental implants. Dr. Joseph Hildebrand and our team will work closely with you to develop a comprehensive implant treatment plan, customizing it to meet your specific needs and restore your smile’s functionality and aesthetics.

At Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we prioritize patient comfort and safety. We offer various sedation options to ensure a relaxed and anxiety-free experience during your sinus lift procedure. Our caring team will provide detailed pre-operative and post-operative instructions, addressing any concerns you may have and guiding you through a successful recovery.
