A Direct Sinus Lift Surgery adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. The bone is added between maxillary sinuses & your jaw, which are on either side of your nose. The sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted" to make room for the bone. A sinus lift usually is done by a specialist. This could be either an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist.
When is it required?
To be a candidate for Direct Sinus Lift Surgery which is also known as the Osteotome Technique, a patient must have sufficient bone height and width to support the titanium post & artificial tooth root. If a patient has been without a tooth or teeth for a prolonged period of time, the bone that once supported the teeth becomes deteriorates & becomes weak, resulting in a lack of bone height to sustain implants. Because the maxilla rests against the sinus so when there is a loss of bone, the sinus expands automatically to fill the space which was once occupied by the jaw bone.
What are the benefits? This method is more convenient for the dentists because of the better view of an operative field. In addition, this method saves more time. For patients with considerable bone, specialists recommend this method which results in further surgery success. This surgery needs extreme precision & experience.
