We owe our constantly favorable and predictable results to a careful selection of biomaterials (those which have stood the test of time in our own work and INDEPENDENT international studies), surgical technique (microsurgery) and technology (piezosurgery).
CT scans provide us with information about the sinuses, the state of the membrane, the width of the bone ridge, the morphology of the sinus floor and the width of the vestibular and palatine walls. It allows us to adapt the surgical techniques to the anatomical particularities of the area (blood vessels, nerves, etc) The sinus membrane is very thin and coats the sinus walls.
The purpose of this procedure is to place bone augmentation materials between the alveolar bone and the membrane, without perforating it.
We use piezosurgical techniques which do not damage the soft tissues, leaving the membrane intact, and special instruments to safely lift it. A thorough investigation of the sinus anatomy and the strict surgical protocol ensure a success rate of over 99%.
Upon completion of procedure, we recommend the patient to follow a treatment consisting of anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics, pain killers, cold bandages and to avoid physical effort.
The patient must avoid any activity which exerts pressure on the sinuses and the nasal cavity, in order to prevent the bone graft from moving or damaging the bone graft or any other complications.
Daca se respecta aceste recomandari, vindecarea primara se realizeaza rapid. Comunicarea cu echipa medicala este necesara pe parcursul recuperarii.
After surgery, periodical checks are mandatory to monitor healing and remove the stiches.
Usually, full recovery which results in thickening of the sinus floor with new bone takes anywhere from 8 months to 1 year. This period is necessary to stabilize the bone graft and fully mineralize the newly formed bone.
THE ADVANTAGES OF SINUS LIFT
DISADVANTAGES OF SINUS LIFT
Access to the sinus coincides with the preparation for implant insertion. It is less invasive, but it requires the presence of at least 6 mm of bone tissue.
