Loss of teeth in the lateral regions of the upper jaw often leads to resorption of the alveolar ridge and maxillary sinus volume increase at the expense of bone. It causes situation when bone segment height is not sufficient for implant insertion. In such cases, solution is a surgical method – sinus lift. It is intervention that includes raising the sinus floor with the installation of artificial bone to create a sufficient amount of bone necessary for implant insertion.
There are two methods of sinus lifts that we do in our clinic:
- internal sinus lift
- external sinus lift
After this procedure, patients are able to obtain fixed prosthetic work as a final solution and thus fully rehabilitate their teeth, with no mobile prosthesis.
