A sinus lift is a treatment method for the upper jaw to raise the maxillary sinus a little. This is done to create more space for the implant in the bone. In most cases, this procedure is not necessary, especially with a 3D X-ray and computer-guided implantology, it can often be avoided. If a sinus lift is necessary, a distinction is made between an internal and an external sinus lift. While the internal sinus lift is rather a minor procedure, the external sinus lift poses other challenges. In our clinic in Abu Dhabi, we try to use the patient’s own bone as much as possible in order to avoid a sinus lift altogether.
