Lack of sufficient bone height in the upper jaw may prevent dental implants from being placed securely, therefore making a sinus lift is much even more necessary.
Periodontitis can cause the bone in the jaw to deteriorate, making it difficult to support dental implants, and a sinus lift becomes necessary to rebuild the bone.
Trauma or significant injury to the jaw, can cause substantial bone loss and require a sinus lift procedure to restore the bone volume and support dental implants.
Losing one or more teeth in the upper jaw can lead to gradual bone loss over time, and necessitating a sinus lift to prepare the area for successful implant placement.
What is a sinus lift?
A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It is also known as a sinus augmentation.
Why do I need a sinus lift?
You may need a sinus lift if you have lost bone in your upper jaw due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or natural aging. The additional bone is necessary to support dental implants or to improve the stability of existing teeth.
How is a sinus lift performed?
During the procedure, a small incision is made in your gum tissue where the back teeth used to be. The tissue is then lifted to expose the bone underneath. A small window is created in the bone, and the membrane lining the sinus is gently pushed upward. Bone graft material is then packed into the space, and the incision is closed with stitches.
Is a sinus lift painful?
You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area before the procedure, so you should not feel any pain during the surgery. After the surgery, you may experience some discomfort and swelling for a few days. Your dentist may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to manage any discomfort.
How long does it take to recover from a sinus lift?
Recovery time can vary depending on your individual case, but it typically takes several months for the bone graft to fuse with your existing bone. During this time, you will need to avoid putting pressure on the area and follow your dentist’s instructions for care and maintenance.
Are there any risks associated with a sinus lift?
Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with a sinus lift, including infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. However, these risks are relatively low, and your dentist will take precautions to minimize them. It is important to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions to minimize the risk of complications.
