Question
Hello Dr.,

Do you happen to know if the IRaise sinus lift procedure is approved in the States? I read about it online but can't find any link with the U.S..

Thank you for your time,
J.

Answer
Julie - I am not sure that this technique is being used in the US, but my suggestion is to call the following number.  This is is Maxillent Corporate Headquartes  +972-9-9534500.

This company should know who they sell to in the US.  It might not be directly to a dentist or a number of dentists, but they should be able to give you names of US dental suppliers who should know which dentists perform this.

I think this procedure is good, but the doctor needs to be very skilled and trained so that grafting material is not placed incorrectly.
