If you’ve worn dentures for an extended period of time in your upper jaw, the bone will have receded, rendering it difficult to undergo implant treatment and giving your face a sunken appearance.
A sinus lift allows a second chance at the functionality and reliability of dental implants.
Prior to the procedure, a number of tests will be run to ensure the suitability of the sinuses, which may include panoramic x-rays and CT scans.
As with a bone graft procedure, there are several options for the new bone material: from the patient, from other tissue sources (human or animal), or synthetic. Your dentist will advise which will be best for you.
The sinus lift procedure will be performed by the dentist under local anaesthetic.
After a period of time, the site will be healed and ready for implants.
A sinus lift is a safe and clinically proven procedure and when completed with expertise and care it will provide the best, most stable base for life-changing implant surgery.
As with any surgical procedure, at our practice, we ensure that you understand all aftercare instructions and will check back with you regularly to ensure the healing is going smoothly.

“We have been patients at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre Practice for about six years and my children are now seven and ten. In all that time they have never dreaded going, which is fantastic. Having a great dentist makes all the difference – I’m so relieved to have found Nikki (Triffitt), a highly skilled practitioner. ”

“I have been a patient at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre for about 25 years and my two children have grown up under their care. My husband is also a patient and we can't speak highly enough of them. It's an absolutely brilliant practice.
I found Goldsworth Road Dental Centre online. It looked like a very good practice, so I visited them for an initial assessment, which they handled very well. I have been with the practice for about a year now and I am totally delighted with everything, their service and treatment. It has all worked out 100% for me.
