What is a Sinus Lift?
A surgical sinus lift is often performed to help patients qualify for an implant. At East Village Dental Center, we can prepare you for an implant with sinus lift surgery. Inadequate bone height in the upper jaw, poor bone quality, or sinuses that could be too near to place an implant are reasons why you may need a sinus lift, also called sinus augmentation surgery. The sinus floor needs to be moved to ensure an implant can be properly placed. Schedule a consultation with our dental team in New York, NY to find out more about dental implants and sinus lift surgery.
Who Can Have a Sinus Lift?
You may qualify for a sinus lift if you have an insufficient area in your upper jaw for an implant due to your sinuses being excessively big or too near the bone. During a personal consultation, we will perform a digital x-ray to measure your sinuses and jaw and determine if repositioning the sinuses with or without a bone graft would be a proper plan of action before an implant.
East Village Dental Center Reviews
Update [3/23/2023]: The office manager called me and assured me they will note my concerns and look to conduct better care of patients moving forward. I felt she was sincere and have since updated my review. I hope they continue to work on their patient care / Customer service as they are a vital health care facility in the community. Updated 1/30/2023 - Not sure what’s happened at East Village Dental however I think it’s a change in the management team that handles customer service. While they have updated the way they conduct business when you call they rarely pick up the phone, they do not return calls, they don’t have an emergency line for concerns post surgery. After an uncovering I developed canker sores and called them for a follow up they told me they’d call me back and instead I went the entire weekend in pain (see attached photo at your discretion). I did use warm water and salt to soothe the area but maybe they could have prescribed something to alleviate the pain which led to several days of headaches. There was little concern about my pain/discomfort which I’m very surprised from a place that I really liked and highly recommended just 1-2 years ago. After my crowns are in place I’m not sure I’ll go to them for a cleaning letting alone any serious oral surgery. Until they get a team that’s actually concerned about the customer/Patient stay away from EVD.
Excellent communication and kind staff. I have been coming here for ten years and I’m always kindly greeted, and well informed on the treatment expected. Highly recommended if you haven’t found that dental clinic that leaves you feeling like that’s the one. They are very professional and very efficient, as well as very accommodating. Cheerio
A wonderful practice! Both in their care and bedside manner, East Village Dental Center delivers ideal experiences. They’ve been serving my family and the community at large for many years. The receptionists are so nice and welcoming. The hygienist hooked me up with a painless cleaning and the doc was lovely. One can witness how imperative the reception desk being bilingual is here and how courtesy, a smile, cleanliness and quality care are so important to the diverse demographic that surrounds this gem. It’s walking distance for me, but I’d travel here if it wasn’t! Bravo!
Let me start by saying this dental office is for the community 100%, they are transparent about pricing from the moment you talk to them unlike many dentists in the area which I appreciated! Vanessa and Christine are funny , sweet, honest and understanding ! They took my concerns and budget seriously. Never met receptionists that are compassionate until these two! They squeezed me last minute ( literally) in and the dentist whose name was Amish was so informative and explained my crown procedure. Thank you all!! See you soon !! My two sisters get services here now I see why! 💚💚💚

How is a Sinus Lift Performed?
A sinus lift is a detailed surgical procedure that is completed in our New York City office. If necessary, a bone graft will be prepared. A surgical incision will be placed in the soft tissue in the back of your mouth. Then, we will raise the gums will to reveal the jawbone. If needed, the bone graft will be completed before the sinuses are pushed up higher and away from the jaw. Finally, the incision within the gums will be stitched.
What Can I Expect when Recovering from a Sinus Lift?
Following your sinus raise, we may give you a prescription for pain relievers and antibiotics to help you during your recovery. We will go over the best way to care for your incisions in detail and will also give you instructions on how to care for your mouth post-surgery. You should schedule a follow-up appointment about a week or so after your sinus surgery so we can remove the stitches. If you previously had a bone graft, it will take a few months to heal before an implant can be placed.

Sinus Lift Surgery
