Sinuses are the air spaces in the middle of the head bones.
When our teeth located under our sinuses are extracted, the sinus floor sags into the space where the extraction is made over time and the bone volume in this area decreases. This bone is insufficient for the implants that we want to place fully into the bone. Surgical elevation of the sinus floor to increase the decreased bone ratio is called sinus lifting.
It takes about half an hour with local anesthesia.
After the operation, mild pain may occur that can be relieved with painkillers.
You should not go on plane trips for 2-3 weeks, avoid going to the bathhouse or very hot baths, avoid diving, and be careful not to sneeze hard or keep your mouth open when sneezing. Applying ice compresses should be continued every 10 minutes for 48 hours.
The area has a period of 5-6 months for the area to heal so that the graft applied to the area can turn into hard tissue.
If the jawbone below the elevated part has enough bone height for the implants to hold firmly to the bone (at least 3 – 5 mm), implants can be placed in the same session.
It is the technique used to extract teeth that cannot be easily seen in the mouth, are broken at the gum line, or are impacted. In some cases, there may be bone on the tooth that needs to be removed. After the tooth to be extracted is divided into parts, it may need to be removed. In this case, surgical extraction is performed. As with normal extraction, the procedure can be performed with local anesthesia.
