Implants need secure and stabile base. If there is no base, the success will not be guaranteed no matter what implant and what technique we use. We would like your implant to stay stabile and reliable for at leaset 50-60 years.
If there is not enough bone and the sinus is too close, we need to lift it by placing bone grafting material under the sinus. This way we will have enough space to place the implant.
Sinus lift is a safe procedure that provides a secure base for your implant.
What does sinus lift mean?
During the procedure the internal wall of the sinus towards the missing tooth is lifted and bone grafting material is placed into the cavity that is formed by lifting the sinus. The bone grafting material is usually a mixture of your own bone shavings and a bio bone grafting material.
The procedure is totally painless, fast and safe.
When the bone grafting material solidifies it will be as hard as natural bone and the implant can be placed in it.
What is the result of bone grafting?
- adequate base for the adoption of the implant
- adequate srtrength for a long term tooth replacement that can last for decades
- the sinus does not injure during the implantation
- the implant will be stabile and fix because it will be placed in a secure, strong base
Sinus lift can be carried out even in case of multiple tooth replacement. In our climate zone people tend to have thinner bone, therefore we carry out the procedure quite often at our clinic in order to perform perfect implantation.
We are looking forward to see you at our clinic!
