Sinus lift or not?

Do I need a sinus lift or not?

I broke my tooth (the upper first molar) and I need an extraction and I was considering a dental implant.

I was told (by my friend)that I might need a sinus lift(???) in that area - Do you always need to have a sinus lift procedure in these cases? Who should I go to a dentist or an oral surgeon?

Sinus Lift
by: Anonymous

A sinus lift may or may not be necessary depending upon the amount of bone you have in that particular area. You must have enough bone for the implant or implants to be placed.

A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It's sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either sides of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted."

A sinus lift usually is done by a specialist. This could be either an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist.
