What Is A Sinus Lift Surgery?

A Sinus lift is a surgical procedure that adds bone to the upper jaw near your molars and premolars. It can also be referred to as sinus augmentation. The bone is inserted between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses , which are located on each side of your nose. To make space for the bone, the membrane that covers the sinus must be raised their hands, or "lifted." A sinus lift is usually performed by an experienced practitioner.


When Is It Used For?

A Sinus lift is performed when there is insufficient bone height in the upper jaw or when the sinuses are too close to the jaw to accept dental implants. There are several reasons for this.

Such As

1. A lot of people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw, specifically the back teeth, or molars, do not have enough bone to support implants. Due to the skull's anatomy, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.

2. Periodontal disease may have caused bone loss.

3. Tooth loss may have resulted as well as bone loss. Once the teeth are gone, the bone begins to resorb (absorb back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there is often insufficient bone left to place implants.

4. The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for the placement of implants. The shape and size of this sinus varies from person to person. As you get older, your sinuses may grow larger.

5. Sinus lifts have become common over the last 15 years, as more people get dental implants to substitute missing teeth.

The Preparation Phase

A Sinus lift can be performed using bone from your own body (autogenous bone), a cadaver (allogeneic bone), or cow bone (xenograft). Before your sinus lift, you will need X-rays to allow the dentist to look at the anatomy of your jaw and the sinuses. You might need a specific computed tomography or (CBCT) scan.
This examination will allow the dentist to precisely determine the height and width of your existing bone and determine the health of your sinuses.

If you have seasonal allergies, plan for the procedure when they are not active.

How Does It Work?

The doctor who treats you will remove the gum tissue where your back teeth once were. The tissue has been raised, exposing the bone. A small, oval window has been opened in the bone. The membrane that lines your sinuses on the other side of the window separates them from your jaw. This membrane is gently pushed upward and away from your jaw.

The granules of bone graft material are then packed into the sinus cavity. The amount of bone used varies, but typically several millimetres are added above the jaw.

The Dangers:

The primary danger of a Sinus lift is that the sinus membrane will be perforated or broken. If the membrane tears during the surgery, the surgeon will stitch it or apply an adhesive patch. If the repair is unsuccessful, your surgeon may stop the procedure to allow the hole to heal.

Once the membrane heals, your dentist may repeat the sinus lift. This usually takes several months. A recovered membrane is thicker and more powerful so a second sinus lift attempt is more likely to succeed. Yet, other factors affect success.

Infection is a risk associated with every kind of surgery. However, this is uncommon after the sinus lifts.

In a few instances, the existing bone fails to connect with the bony graft material, and the grafted area lacks a blood supply. If this happens, any implants placed in this area will fail because there is no living bone to attach to. If this happens, you may have the sinus lift process repeated.

When To Contact An Expert?

Following a sinus lift, contact the physician if:

1. Any swelling or pain will get worse over time. (It should go down after concerning the first two days.)

2. The blood loss does not stop after one or two days.

3. Blood loss is bright red and constant. (Normal bleeding following this procedure is gradual, dark red, and could include clots.)

4. You believe the bony material became dislodged after you coughed or blew your nose.

5. The pain does not go away as time passes.

6. You get a temperature.
