If you are missing several teeth, and you are in the process of trying to figure out what method to use in making a restorative repair to your smile, consider using dental implants over dentures to get a permanent pleasing look. Many people shy away from the implant process as they are a bit fearful when they hear it is a surgical procedure. This surgery, however, will give you a look that does not compare to having dentures or a bridge placed in your mouth.
If your dentist says you need sinus lift surgery before you can get dental implants, you probably have a lot of questions. For one, what do your sinuses have to do with your teeth? The answer to that one is easy: the maxillary sinus -- one of the hollow cavities in your skull -- is very close to the back of your upper jaw, making it difficult to place dental implants in this area.
