What is Sinus Lift for Dental Implants?
PROCEDURE & SINUS LIFT
Do you require a sinus lift in order to receive dental implants? What is the purpose of it, and what is the procedure? How is it carried out? We've answered some of the most frequently asked questions here so you can relax and feel prepared for your treatment, as well as learn more about the sinus lift and operation.
WHAT IS A SINUS LIFT PROCEDURE?
The area between your molars and premolars, as well as the space between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses on either side of your nose, is filled with bone during a sinus lift treatment. To create place for the bone, the sinus membrane must 'lift' upward.
WHEN SHOULD A SINUS LIFT BE USED?
Dental implants must be placed in bone tissue that is healthy. Following tooth extractions. In the upper jaw, however, you may notice a reduction in bone length. A sinus elevation surgery can assist retain enough bone length to insert an implant in such circumstances. The dental implantation method can be made possible by a sinus lift, allowing patients with bone loss to benefit from a long-term solution to their missing or failing teeth by employing dental implants.
WHAT IS A SINUS LIFTING PROCEDURE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The quantity and quality of the bone where the implant will be put are important factors in implant success. Due to limited bone quantity and quality, as well as its proximity to the sinus, the upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult places to properly insert dental implants. You may not be able to install implants in that location if you've lost bone in that area due to periodontal disease or tooth loss.
By lifting the sinus floor and generating bone for the implantation of dental implants, sinus lift surgery can assist to remedy this condition. There are a number of procedures that can be used to lift the sinus and allow new bone to grow in its place. An incision is made to expose the bone in one common approach. After that, a little circle was carved into the bone. This bony component is lifted into the sinus cavity like a trap door, with bone graft material filling the area underneath.
Finally, the incision is closed, allowing for the start of the healing process. We make a little incision from the sidewall of the jaw bone if there isn't enough bone under the sinus cavity. We remove the sinus membrane and put the bone graft into the sinus cavity through this window. This procedure is known as a 'open sinus lift operation.' This one is a little more difficult than the previous closed approach.
HOW LONG DOES HEALING TAKE ON AVERAGE?
Following the sinus lift procedure. It will take at least 4 months for the entire healing process to be completed. Following that, between 4 and 12 months after your sinus lift surgery, your implants can be fitted. Our bone will have more time to add to and blend with your current bone as a result of this. The duration between surgery and implant placement is determined by the amount of bone supplied and your individual healing time. Sinus lift surgery has been demonstrated to dramatically improve your chances of having a successful implant procedure. This has the potential to last for many years. During this operation, most patients suffer just minor discomfort.
WHICH MATERIAL DO WE USE TO GIVE YOUR JAWBONE MORE VOLUME?
We employ sterile, synthetic bone particles sourced from a variety of sources. It could be bone taken from another area of your jawbone or animal-derived synthetic bone components (usually bovine and horse). These synthetic bone grafts are prepared under strict circumstances, including gamma ray sterilization and FDA and WHO certification.
WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THIS SINUS LIFT PROCEDURE?
History of head and neck radiotherapy
Some diseases are systemic in nature (uncontrolled diabetes, bone metabolism disease)
Type of infection (Sinusitis)
Those who smoke a lot (more than 20 in a day)
We employ specific techniques that do not harm the soft tissues and leave the membrane intact, as well as special devices to lift it safely. Under local anaesthesia, all sinus operations and grafting procedures can be performed quickly and painlessly. The excellent success rate is due to a detailed examination of the sinus anatomy and a precise surgical technique.
