Sinus Lifts in Thailand

sinus-lift-thailand-surgeryA sinus lift or sinus enhancement treatment is a common type of oral surgery that is used to enhance the height of your maxillary bone to allow the patient to have other treatments such as dental implants. Your maxillary sinuses are found behind the cheekbone area and run from under your eyes to just above the upper portion of the back teeth. It is extremely common for the roots of your back teeth to extend into these sinus areas. If those teeth need to be removed due to decay or damage, very little supporting bone structure is left in between the mouth and maxillary sinus. This lack of supporting structure is what necessitates the need for a sinus lifting procedure. Dental implants and gum grafting surgery are the most common reason of needing a higher volume of bone in the posterior maxilla. Historically,Sinus Lift complications due to bone grafting has led companies create new minimal-surgery techniques to drastically reduce additional risks.

Surgery Overview

Sinus lifting is considered an autogenous bone surgery usually performed under twilight anesthesia and on an outpatient basis (no hospital overnight). The treatment starts by exposing the sinus bone. The oral surgeons then begin the bone grafting to enhance and strengthen the sinus flooring by helping to promote natural bone development. When the sinus flooring structure becomes sturdy the next stage of the dental restoration continues usually with the addition of new oral implants.


Alternatives to Sinus Lift Surgery

A sinus lift is an older technology to surgically manipulate the maxillary sinuses to allow for implant positioning. Today, there are many other highly effective alternatives to sinus lift surgery such as the new zygomatic implants,basal implants and tuberopterygoid implants that allow our dentists to easily restore the upper jaw with a permanent dental bridge and implants in just a few day dental vacation. Sinus lift surgery recovery will require about 4-7 nights in Bangkok.

    I had a question and wanted to know if a sinus lift is always necessary for having dental implants? Im having my molars extracted soon because they broke off completely and there is only tooth left under gum. If my teeth are grafted will a sinus lift be needed? My dentists in Sydney said that he wouldn't know for sure until after my teeth are pulled and a dental xray is redone. I am planning on coming to Thailand anyways in April so please let me know so i can get the remaining work done in Bangkok. Reply
