What Is A Sinus Lift? | Dental Art Implant Clinics

What Is a Sinus Lift?

Sinus lift is a surgical procedure used to provide additional bone in the mouth in the space between the upper jaw and the sinuses. As the name suggests, the membrane of the sinus is moved upwards (or lifted) to make room for the additional bone. 

Why Is Sinus Lift Needed?

The procedure is required if there's not enough natural bone to place dental implants in the section of the upper jaw. Additionally, if the patient’s sinuses are too close to the jaw to be able to successfully place dental implants, a sinus lift procedure might be required as well.

  • Lack of Natural Bone Is Caused By:

  • Natural bone shrinkage due to missing teeth;

  • Periodontal (gum) diseases;

  • An injury or trauma to the jawbone or face;

  • Facial development defects.

  • Do I Need a Sinus Lift?

    If you are interested in getting dental implants in the upper section of your jaw and you lack natural jawbone or your sinuses are too close to the jaw, you might require a sinus lift procedure. After visiting our dental experts it will be determined if this procedure is required.

  • Is Sinus Lift Common?

    Yes – a sinus lift procedure is quite common for dental implant patients. We are doing these procedures every week at our clinics.

  • What Is the Sinus Lift Procedure?

     

  • Our surgeons will cut the gum tissue to expose the bone underneath. A small circle will be cut into the bone to create a “path” to the sinus. 

  • The membrane is then lifted into the created sinus cavity and the hole that had been opened is filled with bone grafting material. Afterwards, the operated gum is sutured closed and is left to heal for several months.

  • After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, discomfort and in rare cases – bleeding, however, this is normal. You will also need to take care not to blow your nose frequently or sneeze too often if possible as this can affect the recovery.

LOCKDOWN UPDATE, 5TH JAN 2021 - WE ARE STILL OPEN

Dear patients, 

According to the latest Government guidelines and the advice of the British Dental Association, we are currently still operating and treating patients at our clinics for scheduled appointments during the current lockdown. Unless the situation changes, this will continue throughout the current period of restrictions.

The current Government guidelines in relation to the lockdown state that "The majority of public services will continue and you will be able to leave home to visit them. These include the NHS and medical services like GPs and dentists".

We will of course continue to monitor the situation and provide our patients with any necessary updates.  

The safety of our patients and staff remains our absolute priority, therefore, all the additional safety precautions that have been in place over the last few months will remain, to ensure a safe and pleasant experience at our clinics.

Feel free to get in touch with us to find out when you can book an appointment and to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have. 

Thank you to all of our wonderful patients for your understanding and patience during this difficult time. 

Stay safe and healthy.
