Sinus Lift for Dental Implant Treatment

Sinus Lift Surgery: Elevating Your Dental Health at formedi Turkey

What is a Sinus Lift?

A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing the amount of bone in the upper jaw, specifically in the area of your molars and premolars. It's often required when there isn't sufficient bone height in the upper jaw, or when the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be placed safely.

How Does the Sinus Lift Surgery Work?

The surgery involves adding bone material to the area between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are located on either side of your nose. To make room for this bone, the sinus membrane needs to be carefully lifted. This additional bone provides the necessary foundation for future dental implants, ensuring they are secure and long-lasting.

Sinus Lift Surgery Techniques

Sinus lift surgeries can be performed using various techniques, depending on the patient's specific anatomy and the amount of bone needed. Here are the main methods we employ at the formedi:

Lateral Window Technique: This traditional method involves creating an opening in the side of the sinus wall to access the sinus membrane and gently lift it upwards. The bone graft material is then placed into the newly created space.

Osteotome Technique: Suitable for cases requiring less bone augmentation, this method uses special instruments to lift the sinus floor from within the mouth gently. The bone graft material is then inserted through the same opening used to access the sinus.

Our skilled surgeons at formedi Turkey will determine the most appropriate technique based on a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health and anatomical requirements.
