Sinus lift surgery is a procedure that reconstructs bone tissue. During a sinus lift surgery, the surgeon will place bone-filling materials in the maxillary sinuses. A sinus lift isn’t a painless process, but it takes a short time.
Before a sinus lift, you will get local anaesthesia, which prevents pain and discomfort.
A sinus lift is necessary when you want to get dental implants in the upper jaw but have insufficient bone tissues. Bone loss may occur due to the following.
In most cases, these issues result from the patient’s level of dental care. Losing only one tooth can affect the bone tissues, even if you are healthy.
A sinus lift may be open or closed.
This is a milder procedure. The dental surgeon will deepen the maxillary sinus through a tiny hole in the mucous membrane and then fill the area with bone-filling material. The implant placement will be on this spot. You may have a closed sinus lift surgery if your bone height is 7 – 8 mm.
If you have sufficient bone height and no condition that may affect the procedure result, you can simultaneously have the sinus lift and implant placement.
In open sinus lift surgery, the dental surgeon will make a small incision in the mucous membrane of the maxillary sinus lateral area. This allows easy access to the bone to expand the bottom area of the maxillary sinus.
After filling the area with bone filling material, the dental surgeon will stitch it. If your bone height is 3 mm or above, you can have the implant placed immediately to prevent further surgery. If your bone height is insufficient, the implant placement will be four months after the procedure.
You must follow your aftercare instructions for a successful sinus lift procedure. Ensure you use a new toothbrush and avoid eating hot food the first day after the procedure. Take your prescribed medications and do not engage in sports for the recommended period.
Besides these general recommendations, your dentists will also provide detailed hygiene and dietary requirements.
