Sinus Lifting

In the upper jaw, with the loss of the teeth in the posterior region, the bone tissue surrounding the tooth may be lost over time. Sagging can be observed in the sinus cavities adjacent to this area. Due to the loss of tissue, the bone tissue in the area may not be sufficient to perform a successful implant treatment. In this case, treating the loss of the sinus floor by lifting the bone tissue in this area in order to perform an ideal implant treatment is called sinus lift.

Does the sinus lift procedure prolong the implant treatment process?

In many cases, the sinus floor lifting procedure can be done at the same time as the implant treatment. The most important criterion in deciding to apply these procedures together is the presence of bone tissue in the area to ensure the stability of the implant. In areas with severe bone loss, it may not be possible to ensure the immobility of the implant. In this case, since an ideal implant treatment cannot be performed, it is expected that the sinus lift procedure will fuse with the bone tissue in the area. After an average of 6 months, the bone tissue in the region becomes suitable to ensure the stability of the implant in an ideal way. After this process is completed, implant treatment can be started.
