A Safe and Effective Procedure to Improve Your Oral Health

A sinus lift, in name alone, sounds like a traumatic procedure that nobody would want to undergo under any circumstance.

While any type of surgery isn’t exactly a walk in the park, sinus lifts are safe, effective procedures that are performed regularly around the world.

What most people don’t realize is that a sinus lift can greatly improve their oral health.

Keep reading to learn more about why sinus lifts can be so effective for many people, as well as why many dentists routinely recommend them to their patients.

When a tooth is lost, either due to trauma, decay or because of overcrowding, sometimes the bone around that area is reabsorbed into the jaw.

A sinus lift can be done in Mexico with a high standard procedure to correct this situation, basically elevating the sinus floor.

  What is a Sinus Lift Procedure?

A Sinus Lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars.

It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The next step is adding bone between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose.

To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted.” A sinus lift is done by our specialist.

With age, or in the event of tooth loss, the maxillary sinus expands and makes the jaw bone atrophy.

The maxillary sinus, located above the upper molars, wastes away and the remaining bone does not have sufficient volume to support dental implants.

In layman terms, the bone tissue located right below your eyes shrivels thanks to tooth loss or the passing of time. Placing a dental implant without first doing a sinus lift in Mexico for those who need it can lead to destructive results.

The Advantages of a Bone Grafting Procedure

Sinus augmentation may sound daunting, but it is a crucial first step towards a fuller, healthier smile if you’ve experienced problems with jaw bone loss.

Prepare your mouth for dental implants with sinus lift surgery that will restore the structure of your upper jaw.

Once your jaw bone has developed and healed, you can have dental implants fitted to restore those spaces at the back of your mouth:

  • Increases amount of bone
  • Makes it easy for dentist to place implant
  • Stops and reverses bone atrophy
  • Bone integrates with jaw properly

Age can play a role in the relative shape and size of your bone structure.

Will You Need Sinus Surgery for Dental Implants?

When there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to it, sinus lift surgery is required to be able to place dental implants securely.

There are several reasons for this:

  • Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw.
  • Gum disease could've affected the bone.
  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well
  • Sinus can get larger as you age.
  • Common during the last 15 years as more people get dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants must integrate into the bone to successfully hold permanent teeth.

Making Painful Sinus Lift Dental Implants a Thing of The Past

Sinus lifts can be a particularly unpleasant experience for patients. The procedure takes more than an hour and involves significant trauma.

Patients need to rest at home for three to 10 days due to the pain, discomfort, and severe, unattractive facial swelling and bruising.

Six to nine months after the procedure, new bone is generated, and a second procedure is required to insert a dental implant into the newly formed bone.

Is followed by a three- to the five-month waiting period for the dental implant to be integrated into the bone when the prosthetic tooth can finally be inserted.t

With artificial Intelligence, technology not only made the procedure quicker to perform but has significantly reduced the pain a patient would feel after treatment.

This dental care, staff and Dr’s are more than excellent. Very caring, kind, and just wonderful. I had done 2 root canals with crowns and 7 implants.

Trust Dental is the best dental clinic if you are looking for Tijuana dentist. I flew 6 hours to get my implants , and they placed 4 implants less than 1 hour.

Post Operative Instructions for Sinus Lift

A certain amount of swelling, pain, and bleeding is normal.

The following instructions are provided to make your postoperative recovery period as short and pleasant as possible.

You will be having a Sinus Lift if the area in the upper jaw that you are to have an implant currently has insufficient bone because of an enlarged sinus.

Do not under any circumstances blow your nose for the next four weeks. May be longer if indicated by our dentist. You may sniff all you like but no blowing.

  • Bite down and maintain firm pressure on the gauze pack that was placed at the end of your surgery.
  • There may be two areas of gauze in your mouth. Do this for at least 30 minutes.
  • At that time remove the pack and replace it with another gauze sponge as provided. Repeat this as necessary.
  • There should not be excessive bleeding. Bright red blood rapidly pooling in the area is not healthy.

If you were asleep for the surgery be sure to eat a soft, nutritious food before taking any medications.

Will decrease the chances of post-surgical nausea. You were prescribed an antibiotic before surgery this should be continued until all the pills have been taken. You were prescribed a decongestant; bear this until it is all gone.

Grab your pain medications as needed by the directions. Codeine, hydrocodone or Demerol can be supplemented with Advil or ibuprofen type drugs. Be sure you have no allergies that our dentist does not know about.

Also, do not rinse or spit for a minimum of 72 hours and longer if possible. Tends to disturb the blood clot and can prolong bleeding, open the wound and slow healing.

There should be no blood in your mouth.
