Sinus augmentations, or sinus lifts, are a bone grafting procedure used to help thicken the wall of bone separating your maxillary sinus (the area behind your cheeks and above your upper teeth) and your mouth. Dr. Dintcho and Dr. Shapira may recommend a sinus lift in preparation for, or in conjunction with, dental implant placement. Call Union Street Dental Care today for more information on sinus augmentation in San Francisco, California, and to schedule your consultation with one of our experienced dentists.
