Sinus Lift

A successful dental implant procedure is largely dependent on the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is placed.

If you need a dental implant in the upper back of your mouth, the proximity to your sinus cavity, and lack of bone height in this area, can make this procedure difficult.

Sinus lift surgery is often the answer.

Using advanced techniques, our periodontists ensure a successful implant by raising your sinus floor before regenerating sufficient bone.

Dr. Pumphrey and his staff were all caring, congenial, competent and professional. He went out of his way to adjust his calendar to ensure my dental issue was taken care of ASAP. I experienced no pain during the procedure and the results are great. Highly recommended!

Frequently asked questions about bone regeneration

How is bone regeneration achieved?

Bone regeneration can be achieved through a variety of surgical procedures, including:

  • Bone grafting: Either using synthetic, cadaver, Bovine, or grafting bone tissue from the patient’s jaw and transplanting it to the area where bone regeneration is needed, providing a framework for new bone to grow.
  • Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and guided bone regeneration (GBR): Place a barrier membrane over the affected area to prevent the growth of unwanted tissue while allowing new bone or periodontal tissue to grow in its place.
  • Regenerative therapy: Biological or synthetic materials are used to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue. This can include the use of growth factors, stem cells, and other substances to promote the regeneration of bone.

In all cases, the goal of bone regeneration is to provide a stable foundation for new bone tissue to grow, which can help to improve oral health and support restorative treatments such as dental implants. The specific type of procedure used will depend on your individual needs and the severity of the bone loss.

What’s the difference between Guided Tissue Regeneration and Guided Bone Regeneration?

The main difference between the two procedures is that GTR is used to promote the growth of periodontal tissue, while GBR is used to promote the growth of new bone tissue. Both procedures can be used to improve oral health and support restorative treatments such as dental implants.

Who is a candidate for bone regeneration?

Individuals with significant bone loss caused by periodontal disease, injury, or tooth loss are typically good candidates for bone regeneration.

Am I a candidate for a sinus lift?

The following are some factors that may indicate that you are a candidate for a sinus lift procedure:

  • Loss of posterior teeth in the upper jaw
  • Decreased height of the sinus floor
  • Previous sinus infection
  • Previous sinus surgery

It is important to note that not everyone who is missing teeth or has a decreased height of the sinus floor is a candidate for a sinus lift. Your periodontist will be able to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you based on your individual needs and medical history.

Is bone regeneration painful?

Bone regeneration procedures can cause some discomfort, but the pain level will depend on the specific procedure being performed and the individual patient’s pain tolerance. Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon or periodontist will provide you with a local anesthetic or sedation to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, and discomfort, but this can usually be managed with prescription pain medication provided by your doctor.

It’s important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your doctor to minimize any pain or discomfort and to ensure the best possible outcome from your bone regeneration procedure.

How long does bone regeneration take to complete?

The timeline for bone regeneration varies depending on the type of procedure and the severity of the bone loss. On average, bone regeneration can take several months to complete, but some patients may see results in as little as three months.

Can bone regeneration be combined with other dental treatments?

Yes, bone regeneration can be combined with other dental treatments, such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, or dentures. Your dental professional can help determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
