Maxillary sinus lift

MAXILLARY SINUS LIFT

Reconstructive Surgery

With a maxillary sinus lift intervention you can increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw, allowing the inclusion of adequate length implants.

Description: Increase the amount of upper jaw bone.

Anestesia: Local anesthesia.

Healing: 1-2 days to return to normal life; 3-6 months for complete bone integration.

SURGICAL INTERVENTION

With a small surgical flap inside the mouth, maxillary sinus is accessed, the intervention of bone regeneration is carried out: bone removal from the patient is not necessary in all cases, since it can use special natural or synthetic substitutes (biomaterials). In almost all cases you can proceed with implants insertion simultaneously to bone regeneration, with the ability therefore to perform a single operation. Some stitches conclude the procedure.

DURATION OF THE INTERVENTION

The intervention normally lasts less than one hour.

HEALING

Light swelling may be present in the days following the surgery. 4 to 6 months are required to be able to proceed with the prosthetic implants.
