Are you considering dental implants but have been told you may need a sinus lift? A sinus lift, also known as a sinus augmentation, is a procedure to raise the sinus floor and add bone to support dental implants. Dr. Castaño is a board-certified periodontal specialist offering expert-level procedures such as sinus lifts here in our Denville dental practice.
What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift is a procedure to increase the bone volume in the upper jaw near the molars and premolars (back teeth). When these teeth are missing, the sinus lining tends to drop down, making it impossible to install an implant without rupturing the sinus membrane. During a sinus lift, we raise the sinus membrane lining and add bone below it so that dental implants can be placed in that space.
Types Of Sinus Lifts
Our board-certified specialist provides both vertical and horizontal sinus lift treatments to fit your needs. Vertical and lateral sinus lifts are techniques used to prepare the upper jawbone for dental implants.
A vertical sinus lift is performed when there is insufficient bone height between the sinus cavity and the jawbone.
A lateral sinus lift is used when there is inadequate width in the jawbone for the implant to be placed. Expert care and proper technique are critical for successful sinus lifts for dental implants.
Recovery After A Sinus Lift
After undergoing a sinus lift procedure, patients may experience some degree of discomfort and swelling in the areas where the surgery was performed. Most patients will be instructed to rest for the first day after the surgery and then follow up with our periodontist specialist for evaluation a few days later.
Why Seek Expert Care
When it comes to getting a sinus lift for dental implants, it is best to seek the services of a qualified dental specialist. Dental specialists have extensive training and expertise in reconstructive dentistry, allowing them to provide a higher level of care during complex sinus lift procedures. As a board-certified specialist, Dr. Castaño is trained in the latest techniques to provide the best results possible, even if you’re experiencing complete tooth loss. Many Denville area dentists refer their patients to Dr. Castaño for implant cases involving significant bone loss, as he is able to offer high-level care techniques to patients that might not otherwise qualify for dental implant treatment.
