What is a sinus lift, and why might I need one?

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that adds bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars. It is often needed when there isn’t enough bone height to support dental implants, typically due to bone loss or the position of the sinus.

How long does it take to recover from a sinus lift?

Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing rates. Generally, initial healing takes about two weeks, while full integration of the bone graft may take several months. Your dentist will provide specific post-operative care instructions.

Is a sinus lift painful?

The sinus lift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring you do not feel pain during the surgery. Some discomfort may be experienced during recovery, but it can be managed with prescribed pain relievers and proper aftercare.

How is the bone graft material for a sinus lift obtained?

Bone grafting material for a sinus lift can come from several sources, including the patient’s own bone (autograft), donor bone (allograft), synthetic materials, or a combination. The choice of material depends on the patient’s specific needs and the type of graft required.

Can I get dental implants immediately after a sinus lift?

In some cases, dental implants can be placed immediately after a sinus lift. However, often a healing period of several months is required to allow the graft to integrate with the jawbone before placing implants. Your dentist will determine the best approach for your situation.


Doctor Richardson is just the best! I had just traveled 13hrs in a car with a toothache. When I got home, I called his after hours line not expecting too much. He answered and met me at his office. He gave me a new crown while I waited! Amazing. I feel better. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly and kind, very knowledgeable and speedy. Went in for a tooth extraction and was in and out in under an hour. Definitely recommend. The whole team did their work very swiftly and well organized.
Amazing staff, extremely friendly!!! A++ all the way around! I’ve never been a fan of going to the dentist, in fact I down right hated it! As soon as I walked in the door, the 2 lovely ladies at the front desk were super sweet and welcoming. Went through paper work quick and they got me back even quicker! As soon as I got back they were very nice and informative, both the dentist and assistant listened to me and my concerns. Did X-rays and found that I did not need a root canal as a previous dentist had tried to tell me. They were able to do the extractions and My mouth feels amazing even the day after! Extracted two teeth from my head and I still love em! Found my new dentist!!!!
Great office and staff. All four of our family members have seen Dr. Richardson now. We are long time patients of Dr. Utberg and the change has been seamless. My husband broke a tooth on a weekend and was called back after hours immediately and scheduled Monday morning to get it fixed. Very thorough with some updated procedures. Personal service like we have always had and honest, thoughtful care. Highly recommend!!!
My family have been patients at this dentist for five years, and my experience has consistently been top-notch. The staff is friendly and professional, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The dentist is thorough in explaining procedures, ensuring I'm comfortable throughout. The office is well-maintained, and appointments are efficiently managed. They are even great with my young boys! Highly recommend.
