Sinus Augmentation in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge in Northern Virginia

Many people come to Northern Virginia Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates because their dentist has referred them to us for a dental implant.

One of the keys to a successful dental implant is ensuring the quality and quantity of the bone where the implant will be placed. If the dental implant will be placed in the upper back jawbone, you may need sinus augmentation first to create enough bone height in the area of the jaw that contains the molars and premolars.

What is Sinus Augmentation?

Sinus augmentation is another name for sinus lift surgery. It’s a technique used to raise the sinus floor so new bone can form in the upper back jawbone, allowing for the placement of a dental implant. Our oral surgeons will add bone between the jaw and maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To create enough room for the bone graft, the oral surgeons will move the sinus membrane upward.

It’s become a common procedure in the past 16 years, and patients feel comfortable throughout the procedure.

Why may a sinus lift be necessary?

There are several reasons why there may not be enough natural bone in the back of the upper jaw to place a dental implant. A sinus lift may be necessary for these reasons:

  • Anatomy: the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw
  • Shape and size of the sinus cavity, which gets larger with age
  • Bone loss due to periodontal (gum) disease
  • Bone loss due to a missing tooth or teeth

When you come for your consultation, the oral surgeon will take x-rays to study the anatomy of your jaw and sinuses. You may also need a CT scan, which can be taken right in the comfort of our own office. The scan allows our oral surgeons to accurately measure the height and width of the existing upper jawbone and evaluate the health of the sinus cavity.

Call us today to schedule a consultation to see whether a sinus lift may be necessary before getting a dental implant.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

Despite all my nerves, my experience was really great! The staff was very helpful and patient with me and they were easy to talk to. I had minimal pain and discomfort during and after my wisdom teeth extraction. I healed surprisingly fast after the procedure, too!

Unfortunately we had to be seen for an emergency situation. Dr. Haron was very thorough with informing us of what was to be expected. He was spot on with what happened and what he told us to expect. His calm, gentle demeanor was quite settling for us.

Dr. Jackson was extremely professional, patient, informative as well as friendly and enjoyable. She explained everything in great detail before my procedure.

I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

Excellent service at a reasonable price. I had to have surgery right away, and they got me inside, got the surgery for much less than I expected to be charged and had an issue later when I got home. The Doctor called me herself, and followed up with me two more times to make sure everything was okay. There was very little pain and the swelling went down when they said it would, I highly recommend…

I was referred to NVOMSA by our family dentist, and I have t say I was very impressed with Dr. Zadeh and his staff. My son had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and had a great experience. The procedure took about 1/2 and hour and my son is recovering very well, miniaml swelling. Overall and excellent experience. They did a great job with my son’s wisdom teeth extractions.

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.

Had my wisdom teeth extracted yesterday and opted out of sedation. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous. But after 25 minutes I was checking out and felt great. I couldn’t talk much, but the entire process was fast and efficient. Now 24 hours later, I’m thinking I would be perfectly fine to go back to work tomorrow morning! I am very appreciative that I was recommended to this OMFS office.
