DIFFERENT TYPES OF SINUS LIFTS
Internal Sinus Lift
 (aka. Summer's Technique)
External Sinus Lift
 (aka. Lateral Window Sinus Lift Technique)

The internal sinus lift procedure lift allows the bone height to be increased through a vertical internal opening created in the bone and adding bone through the opening and a dental implant is inserted at the same time.

 

Indirect Sinus Lift (Summer’s Technique) can be completed when there is more than 5-7 mm of residual bone height present.

A lateral window sinus lift allows the bone height to be increased through an oval external opening created in the bone and adding bone through the opening and a dental implant can be inserted at the same given the correct conditions.

 

Lateral Window Sinus Lift can be completed when there is less than 5 mm of residual bone height present.

Implant Placement Immediately with Sinus Lift

With careful 3D Digital Planning, dental implants can be placed at the same time the sinus lift surgery is done.  There is a certain amount of existing bone that is needed to be able to complete the two procedures together and it can easily be determined by a 3D x-ray called CBCT.
