The sinus lift surgery
The sinus lift procedure
, also known as maxillary sinus floor augmentation
or sinus graft is a surgical procedure performed by specialized dentists
that aims to add bone to the upper jaw of the patient when there is not enough bone available to support a dental implant
There are many reasons that lead to tooth decay
and tooth loss which make it difficult in some cases to perform a dental implant
. Depending on your particular case our dentists in Bucharest
will carefully assess the need for a sinus lifting procedure
. In order to determine the anatomy of your sinuses and jaws one of our dentists will perform a dental X-Ray
Technique and indications
The sinus augmentation procedure begins with an incision into the gum, after which the lateral wall of the sinus is exposed. The surgeon continues by cutting into the membrane covering the sinus and lifting that membrane to make room for the placement of the bone graft material. The bone graft can be taken from the patient (autogenous), from a tissue bank (allogenic) or it can be made from synthetic materials.
The sinus augmentation
bone becomes part of the natural sinus floor bone in approximately six months. As any surgical procedure, the sinus augmentation
can present a few risks, the most notable being a ruptured sinus membrane. Our dentists in Bucharest
will talk you through the stages of the surgery and will follow-up after the procedure to make sure that there are no complications. Local anesthesia
is used for this procedure.
