How a Sinus Lift Can Boost Your Chances of Dental Implant Success
Posted on 5/24/2021 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
A sinus lift is an outpatient procedure that can make dental implant placement more successful. For a dental implant to be successful, they need a good anchor. This is the base that will hold them in place for a long time. However, there are some conditions such as loss of teeth, gum diseases, and more that affect the jaws' strength. To solve this, our dentist may recommend a sinus lift surgery due to various reasons.
It Strengthens the Upper Jaw
The key to a successful implant is the quality and quantity of the bone where it should be in place. Dental problems such as plaque, tooth loss, or gum disease negatively affect the jaws' health. Your jaws might not be able to support titanium prosthetics. Since dental implants do not come cheap, it would be best to ensure that they will stay as long as possible once they are attached. A sinus lift will help make your jawbone strong enough to hold the implants comfortably. The procedure will raise the floor of your sinus and develop a stronger bone because the space below will be filled with bone graft material, which will encourage new bone tissue growth.
[[[H2:It Will Create a Good Distance Between the Maxillary Sinus and Upper Jaw]] Dental implants need to have a healthy distance between the maxillary sinus and the jawbone to stay in place. As people age, the shape and the size of the sinus tend to change. Therefore, if your sinus is too close to the jaw, your dentist will not be able to drill the implants down, as they should to help avoid damaging the sinus. A sinus lift will create distance between the two fronts, allowing the implants to be well placed. Get in touch with us to learn more about sinus lifts.
