When Do You a Need Sinus Lift?

The key to a successful dental implant is the quality and quantity of the bone where the implant is to be placed. It’s not uncommon for patients who have lost teeth in the upper jaw to require a sinus lift procedure to have dental implants. When the teeth in the back of the upper jaw are lost, the bone in the area where the teeth are missing begins to shrink back or resorb over time. The sinus also expands into the space where the missing teeth were.

In addition, as parts of the bone get lost around your teeth due to periodontal disease, the amount of bone below the sinus is destroyed, creating a situation where there is insufficient bone to securely place a dental implant.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

There are two methods for performing the sinus elevation procedure, and how it is done for you will depend on your individual needs and the amount of bone you still have. There are times when the sinus lift and placement of the dental implant can be performed at the same visit.

Other times. it is necessary to do this separately and there would then be a healing time of four to six months or more before the dental implants can be safely placed. In many cases, patients experience minimal discomfort both during and after the procedure. Dr. Rothstein will discuss the options with you during your treatment evaluation.

How Does It Help?

Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.

It can also help patients in various ways including common dental issues such as:

  • Severe Tooth Loss
  • Issues with Maxillary Sinus
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Allows Room for Implant
