Are you considering certain dental procedures or speaking to a dentist about dental implants? Do you have questions regarding the requirements and eligibility for some treatments? Whilst patients may benefit from specific procedures, it is imperative to ensure effective, long-lasting treatments to avoid any problems in the future.
What Is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift procedure involves a bone graft that raises the maxillary sinus behind the upper jaw. An oral surgeon uses a bone graft from the patient, bone donor, or lab-created bone in most cases. This added bone successfully aids and ‘lifts’ the sinus while bonding with the existing jawbone. Patients who undergo a sinus lift procedure can successfully receive dental implants after a period of healing.
Why Might I Benefit from a Sinus Lift?
Patients with insufficient jawbone due to periodontal disease, congenital disabilities, deviations or effects from cancer may benefit from a sinus lift procedure. The grafted bone in a sinus lift procedure allows for the placement of dental implants in patients who previously had insufficient jawbone. Those who successfully undergo a sinus lift can expect:
- A sufficient foundation for dental implants
- Sedation during the procedure to avoid pain
- Improved oral health facilitated by the bone graft, allowing for other necessary procedures.
- Treatment intended to last on a long term or life-basis
