Sinus lift is an operation aimed at increasing the volume of bone tissue in the upper jaw area. It is performed as an auxiliary operation before the installation of implants in case of bone deficiency.
In most cases, bone augmentation is required on the upper jaw because having a more porous structure, it atrophies faster and is more likely to be chipped when teeth are removed.
During the operation the bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the artificial bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or «lifted.»
Indications for sinus lift
- Bone atrophy
- Dental injuries
- Anatomical structure
Types of sinus lift
Direct sinus lift is more often used in case of a significant shortage of bone tissue volumes, as well as in preparation for implantation of several teeth at once. The doctor performs an open incision between the jaw bone and the sinus, lifting the mucous membrane and filling the space with an artificial analogue of the bone;
Indirect sinus lift is performed by introducing a similar material through the formed bed by lifting the upper bone plate and on the maxillary sinus for the introduction of osteoplastic material. This method is used most often for Immediate Tooth Replacement as well as in the absence of one tooth in the dentition.
