FAQs

Q: What is a sinus lift?

A: A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure performed to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw, particularly in the area of the molars and premolars. It involves lifting the sinus membrane and adding bone graft material to the sinus floor to create a stable foundation for dental implants.

Q: Why might I need a sinus lift before getting dental implants?

A: A sinus lift may be necessary before getting dental implants if there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw to support the implants. Bone loss in this area can occur due to factors such as tooth loss, periodontal disease, or the natural shape and position of the sinus. A sinus lift creates a thicker, more stable bone structure, allowing for the successful placement and integration of dental implants.

Q: How is a sinus lift performed at Dental Fiume?

A: During a sinus lift procedure at Dental Fiume, your oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the underlying bone. The sinus membrane is then gently lifted upward, and bone graft material is placed into the space created between the sinus floor and the jawbone. Once the bone graft is in place, the incision is closed, and the healing process begins. Over time, the bone graft material fuses with the surrounding bone, creating a solid foundation for dental implants.

Q: Is a sinus lift a painful procedure?

A: Sinus lift surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the procedure. Some discomfort and swelling may occur in the days following the surgery, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses. Your oral surgeon at Dental Fiume will provide detailed post-operative instructions to help minimize discomfort and promote healing.

Q: How long does it take to recover from a sinus lift?

A: Recovery time from a sinus lift varies from patient to patient but typically takes several months. During this time, the bone graft material will integrate with the surrounding bone, creating a strong foundation for dental implants. Your dentist at Dental Fiume will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and determine when it is appropriate to proceed with implant placement.
