The maxillary sinus is just above our upper jaw, which is located in a region close to our molars. When the jaws of the upper jaws are lost, the sinuses located above this area may hang down and cause the upper jaw bone to become thinner. Fine bone is a problem if implant replacement is done instead of lost teeth. In order to increase the amount of bone in the region, the surgical elevation of the sinus base is called sinus lifting. The procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia. Gently increase the sinus membrane and place the graft (bone powder) between the lower bone. Thus, sufficient volume is created for the length and width of the implant to be inserted into the bone.
Sinus lifting operation; is a surgical intervention performed under local anesthesia. Bone dust and grafting is performed in the cavity formed by removing the sinus membrane to the desired level by means of a small window opening through the mouth, and increasing the size of the implant to come to that region.
Human-derived, animal-derived or synthetically produced, bone formation auxiliary materials are called bone powder. These materials are purified by a series of processes to make them suitable to texture. Bone powders are inspected by independent institutions and produced under international guarantee certificates.
If the amount of bone underneath the sinus cavities is very small, then waiting for 4-6 months before implant placement is necessary. However, if the bone size of the sinuses is slightly larger, implants can be placed in the same appointment with sinus lifting. Meanwhile the structure of other bones are also considered.
The sinus lifting operation is performed on the roots of the missing teeth. Although the incision lines are slightly above, the procedure is painless. As with all surgical procedures in the mouth, swelling may also occur for a few days after this operation. When the medicines are taken after the treatment, the healing process is completed comfortably.
