A sinus lift procedure is done on the maxilla (upper jaw) when is insufficient bone below the nasal sinus to place implants in the premolar or molar regions. This may be caused by several reasons including periodontal disease, tooth loss and ageing.
Our dental specialists/ dentists will find out the details of your medical and dental history, go through a consultation and examination, and take an x-ray and a CT scan of your teeth and jaws, to ascertain if you require sinus lift treatment.
A sinus lift procedure is a minor surgery that can be carried out under local anaesthesia and the procedure will be performed in an out-patient setting.
After the sinus membrane is lifted up, bone graft material together with some of your own bone (depending on availability) is inserted to create the extra height of bone for dental implant placement. The procedure lasts between 1 to 2 hours, depending on the extent of bone grafting needed.
Follow Up Care
Depending on the amount of bone originally available, implant(s) may be anchored immediately. Thereafter, a healing period of 5 months will be required while the bone graft matures and integrates with the implant.
