Sometimes, due to jaw bone there are extra procedures on posterior region in upper jaw. In that case we have to raise maxillary sinus. It is called sinus lift. Because, the bone volume in posterior parts only gets thinner over the years. With the sinus lift mucous membrane and by adding an artificial bone we get enough jaw bone volume. This helps us to place the dental implants in the jaw bone. Besides, this is optional and just for patients without jaw bone volume. There is also an alternative and that is all on 4 dental implants technique.
