The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. Sinuses are like empty rooms that have nothing in them. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.Sinus grafting is recognized as an effective treatment modality with high implant survival rates having been reported. The lateral approach technique entails opening a lateral window in the bone and elevating the sinus membrane from the inferior aspect of the maxillary sinus so graft material can be placed between the membrane and the inferior wall of the sinus. Once the lateral opening is made and access to the sinus is obtained, the sinus membrane is carefully separated from its bony attachment using blunt dissection. The membrane is delicately elevated to permit the placement of graft material between the membrane itself and the bony sinus floor. Care also should be taken not to interfere with sinus drainage and not to tear or perforate the membrane. This external (lateral) approach continues to be a popularly used surgical technique.If enough bone between the upper jaw ridge and the bottom of the sinus is available to stabilize the implant well, sinus augmentation and implant placement can sometimes be performed as a single procedure. This technique is called an indirect sinus lift.If not enough bone is available, the sinus augmentation will have to be performed first, then the graft will have to mature for several months, depending upon the type of graft material used. Once the graft has matured, the implants can be placed.
This procedure is not an experimental approach; it is a well-proven, state-of-the-art dental technique that has been scientifically tested and used for decades by dentists and surgeons worldwide.Depending on the condition of each patient, potential risk factors may vary. Poor oral hygiene or limited healing of the wound due to pre-existing medical conditions (e.g., diabetes, osteoporosis) may reduce the success rate.Since every surgical procedure carries potential risks, your dentist will evaluate whether sinus lift is the option for you.
