U svijetu stomatologije poznatiji kao “Sinus lift”
„Sinus lift is a surgical procedure done in upper jaw. This type of procedure is done to compensate bone volume for dental implant treatment.“
Dental implant treatment is not always possible due to insufficient bone volume and is therefore necessary to perform sinus lift.
WHAT IS SINUS LIFT?
Before undergoing a surgical implant insertion in the upper jaw, every surgeon will check not only the bone density but also the position of the sinuses. This is a very important step before doing any implant insertion, as some patients have very low sinus floors.
If the sinus floor is too low, the surgeon will elevate the sinuses before the implant insertion in order to get enough space to insert the implant in the bone. This type of procedure is needed when the tooth is lost and therefore bone volume decreases.
Depending on the bone volume and density, sinus lift can be:
INNER SINUS LIFT
This technique is done simultaneously with the surgical insertion of dental implants. The procedure is done when there is enough bone volume, and without doing this procedure, implant treatment cannot be performed in most cases.
OUTER SINUS LIFT
When the bone density and volume are insufficient, outer sinus lift is done. It involves lifting the floor of sinuses with lateral approach in oral cavity. With massive deficiency of bone volume, implant insertion is postponed until full ossification happens. Sinus lift is done under local anesthesia and is completely painless.
Sinus lift has been a common surgical procedure for many years, with a primary goal of establishing favorable conditions for normal mastication.
WHAT IS BONE AUGUMENTATION?
Sometimes, when we lose a tooth, the bone volume can decrease and therefore not be sufficient for implant insertion. For the implant insertion to be successful, the surgeon sometimes must add some artificial bone in order to increase the volume of the bone that should keep the implant in place and stabilize it in the bone. Depending on the amount of bone augmentation, the healing process can last from 4-9 months.

Why some patients do not have enough bone volume and density in certain areas in their jaw?
There are several reasons, from the natural shape of their scull to gum diseases that can cause bone erosion. Also, if the patient has lost his/her teeth long before the implant treatment, the body can start retracting the bone as it’s not necessary anymore. In modern dentistry, sinus lift is completely painless and safe.
Dentist has to make sure that the jaw and sinus position are measured in the most precise way. CBCT (three-dimensional scan) enables the most precise and detailed measurement.
