A sinus lift is a surgery that can help to correct the problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. This is usually done into the upper jaw, between sinus and teeth. In a case like patient want to have dental implants, but has a thin bone, then sinus lift procedure becomes necessary, in the area of molars and premolars. Sinus lift medical procedure can help right this issue by raising the sinus floor and creating bone for the arrangement of dental implants. In this post, we’ll investigate what this technique involves and when it is fundamental. During the system, bone is included between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To prepare for the bone, the sinus film must be moved upward, or “lifted.” A sinus lift more often than not is finished by an expert, who could be either an oral and maxillofacial specialist or a periodontist.
Why we do sinus lift?
Sinus Lift becomes necessary when there is a lack of bone height in the upper jaw or maybe the sinuses are too close for the implant. Several reasons for sinus lift.
Because of the anatomy of a skull, the back side of the upper jaw has less bone over the lower jaw.
Sometimes there is bone loss due to periodontal disease.
In case it being a long time since the tooth is missing, that will lead to reabsorb of the jaw bone. Which means absorbed back into the body of jaw bone will take place.
Another reason can be the shape and size of the sinus which varies from person to person, so the maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw and create difficulties for implants.
In this surgical procedure which is done through the gums, a new bone layer is created with the natural bone of a patient from another part of in their mouth or body, and in some cases, it created with the help of bone grafting material.
