At our oral and maxillofacial surgical practice, Dr. Dale Gallagher and our team are pleased to offer sinus lifts for our patients in Austin, Texas. A sinus lift is performed if the height of the bone is not the right size, or if your sinuses are too close together, preventing a bone graft which might be considered instead.

What exactly is a sinus lift? This is a surgical treatment where our surgeon adds bone to your upper jaw where the molars and premolars sit in your mouth. Above your upper jawbone, your maxillary sinuses sit on either side of your nose. If you have lost a tooth from your upper jaw area, it is possible that there is a lack of bone structure in the sinus area to place a dental implant with a lift. With the lift, our surgeon can add bone-grafting material where the sinus was to build up the bone structure.

Not only does our team perform sinus lifts for our patients, but we have the experience to help you heal quickly after the surgery, as well as experience the surgery comfortably. To determine if you may benefit from a sinus lift, please call 512-258-1636 today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Dale Gallagher in Austin, Texas. Our team is happy to help you achieve the oral health you deserve!
