Our highly trained team specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgeries to help improve and restore the oral health of men and women in the Pueblo, CO area and surrounding communities. We offer many oral health solutions including sinus lift surgery. This procedure is performed to add bone tissue to the upper jaw in the area toward the back of the mouth where the premolars and molars reside. This is achieved through bone grafting to restore the structure between the jaw and maxillary sinus cavity. A sinus lift is a highly specialized procedure that requires great precision as the sinus cavity is carefully lifted upward to make room for the new bone. This process allows for future dental implants to be placed to restore missing teeth in the top jaw. Our oral surgery team has years of extensive experience in performing sinus lift surgery to aid in optimal oral health. Reach out to Oral Surgery Specialists of Pueblo to learn more about how sinus lift surgery can help you.
"I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed here, and I went in scared but the staff made me feel comfortable and everything went incredibly smooth. Dr. Ringer and the staff were very helpful anytime I had questions. During recovery I did cause myself to bleed from grinding my teeth and I was able to get in contact with Dr. Ringer first thing in the morning and get it checked out ASAP. I appreciate everyone at this location immensely."- J.B. / Google / Oct 15, 2020
"The whole experience from registration to surgery was amazing and professional. Dr. Ringer and his team were friendly, new exactly what they were doing, explained everything thoroughly, and answered all question. They got me back and prepared within minutes and Dr. Ringer was in the room within minutes after that. The whole time getting registered and seeing Dr. Ringer was within 15 minutes. Dr. Ringer took his time this evening to text me to see how I was recovering after surgery and to let me know he was there if I needed anything. I would strongly recommend patients give them a try, you will not regret it."- L.A. / Google / Oct 07, 2020
"Went in to have my wisdoms removed, and it went my like a breeze. Fantastic care and service from the medical staff. took the request for me to keep my teeth well and respectfully. The anisthisia worked like a charm and made the time go by fast for me. If i had another set of wisdom teeth come in, 10/10 would do again."- N.B. / Facebook / Sep 11, 2020

"This was our second visit to have kiddos wisdom teeth removed. Dr Ringer made our daughter feel right at home and very comfortable. He explained what he was doing very clearly and she knew exactly what to expect. The nurses were amazing and very friendly. They allowed me to stay in the room right up until she would not remember me leaving the room. Despite Covid 19 their office was open and moving very smoothly. I highly recommend giving these guys and gals a call with any questions. I did not need a referral but every situation is different. They will get you what you need to get taken care of. Thank you Oral Surgery Specialists for helping my family."- T.C. / Google / Sep 03, 2020
You may consider sinus lift surgery if you need to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant or remove a decayed tooth from the upper jaw area. This procedure may also be ideal if there is insufficient bone mass in the top jaw to safely and securely support dental implants. When you visit our Pueblo practice, we will utilize iCAT™ Cone Beam 3-D imaging technology to capture detail images of your jawbone, sinus cavity, and surrounding oral structures to create a custom treatment plan that addresses your needs and concerns.
What To Expect
Our oral surgery team performs sinus lifts within a surgically accredited facility to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients. We can also incorporate the use of sedation dentistry to help keep you calm and relaxed during your procedure. We offer a variety of sedation options, which we often discuss during your initial consultation to help us move forward seamless at the start of surgery. Once the designated area has been properly numbed, we will create an incision in the gums to access your sinus cavity. A specialized tool is then used to elevate the sinus cavity for the implementation of new bone tissue. Once the bone graft is in place and the sinus cavity is repositioned, sutures will be used to close the small incision.
Once your treatment is complete, we give you instructions on how to best care for your mouth and discuss symptoms to look out for during your recovery. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office so we can provide you with prompt care. You will experience swelling and discomfort especially in the first few days following surgery but this should dissipate over time. We will also schedule a follow-up appointment about 1 – 2 weeks after your surgery to check on your healing progress. Dental implants are typically placed around 1 – 2 months after your sinus lift once the bone graft has healed and fused properly to the jawbone.
Sinus lifts may be covered by your medical or dental insurance depending on your specific coverage. Our team will reach out to your provider to verify your benefits and calculate any personal expenses that may incur. If you have limited coverage or are paying out-of-pocket, we accept most major credit cards and also accept third-party financing through CareCredit®. Our goal is to help make the oral care you need more affordable so you can the treatment you deserve.
