Sinus Lift

stomatoloski radnici i pacijent u ordinaciji

 

1. What is a sinus lift?


A sinus lift is a surgical intervention that increases the height of the jaw bone in the lateral regions of the upper jaw, in the region of the premolars and molars, by raising the membrane on the lower edge of the maxillary sinus, which creates space for the artificial bone to be placed in.


2. Why is sinus lift surgery performed?


With the loss of teeth, the bony alveolar ridge begins to remodel. The loss of the upper lateral teeth leads to resorption of the jaw bone in that region and, over time, the maxillary sinus can be very close to the region where the implant is planned to be placed. If the installation of implants in the lateral regions of the upper jaw is planned, and the patient does not have enough bone to accommodate the implant and its adequate osseointegration, then the sinus lift intervention can be performed beforehand, in order to ensure a sufficient amount of bone for implant installation.

 

 

3. What is the sinus lift procedure?


Before starting the intervention itself, it is necessary to make a 3D image, so that the oral surgeon can accurately analyze the relationship between the maxillary sinus and the alveolar cavity of the upper jaw and create a treatment plan. Everything is done under local anesthesia. During the intervention, the lower bony wall of the maxillary sinus is opened. The oral surgeon removes the lining of the sinuses to make room for the artificial bone. An artificial bone is placed under the opened membrane. In this way, the appropriate height of the maxillary ridge in that lateral region is obtained, so that the installation of the implant can be carried out later. After the intervention, the opened tissue is returned to its original position and adapted there with surgical sutures.


4. Is the sinus lift procedure painful?


With the application of local anesthetic, the intervention is performed by an oral surgeon, and the procedure itself is completely painless. A few days after the intervention, the patient may feel mild pain and discomfort, which can be remedied with the use of analgesics as needed and with a consultation with the dentist.

5. How long does the sinus lift procedure take?

 

This oral surgical intervention lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of the procedure.
 

6. What is the postoperative course of the sinus lift?

 

After the sinus lift intervention, swelling and moderate pain may occur on the first postoperative day, which goes away after taking analgesics. It is completely normal for swelling or bleeding from the nose to occur after this type of surgery. It is necessary to avoid heavy physical exertion for several days after the intervention. It is preferable that the first control with an oral surgeon be 7 to 10 days after the intervention.


It takes three to six months, and sometimes a little more, for the artificial bone to completely fuse with the surrounding bone. This period is necessary in order for everything to heal completely and thereby create favorable conditions for implant placement.

 

7. When can implants be placed after a sinus lift?

 

Installation of the implant can begin only when the artificial bone is formed into solid bone, and it is usually necessary to wait between 6 to 9 months.

8. Are there any contraindications for a sinus lift?

 

There is a certain risk group of patients for sinus lift surgery. Before performing the procedure, it must be ensured that the patient, apart from the indications for use, has no contraindications. All contraindications can be divided into absolute, which is why a person cannot, in principle, undergo surgery, and relative contraindications. In this phase, a therapy plan that is most appropriate in the specific case is created.

 

The sinus lift intervention is contraindicated in immunocompromised persons, persons on radiation- or chemotherapy, as well as persons who have a bleeding disorder or are taking therapy due to systemic diseases that affects it. Certainly, along with the history and examination, the oral surgeon will give you all the instructions when creating the entire therapy plan.

 

9. Can a sinus lift be performed on pregnant women?


In pregnant women, any oral surgical intervention is contraindicated, including a sinus lift. Reasons are due to exposure to radiation of the necessary 3D X-ray during the preparation, or from the stress itself during the intervention.
