Sinus Lift Dental Treatment in Trivandrum, Kerala
Sinus Lift Surgery Procedure - Dr. Kashi’s Ashwathi Dental Clinic
The Sinus Lift is a bone-grafting procedure that's required when the quantity of bone found in a patient's upper jaw (in the region originally occupied by their bicuspid or molar teeth) is inadequate to accommodate the length of a dental implant.
It's typically performed in advance of implant placement surgery, so to allow time for bone healing. But with some cases, both procedures may be done at the same time. While the need for this procedure is not uncommon, not all implants placed in this region will require it.
Some of the reasons why sinus-lift surgery is required include damage to the bone due to a previous surgical procedure (like a difficult tooth extraction) or the effects of periodontal (gum) disease.
When this procedure is performed, a portion of the maxillary sinus is filled in with bone (grafting material). The result is a thicker sinus floor into which a tooth implant can then be placed.
